Hello all, I just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Chris, I just moved to Phoenix, AZ and will be picking up new rail next month. It is an older chasis, not sure of the manufacturer, but looks impressive. It does of course need some work, but is complete. It has a 1776, swing arm rear (will be eventually changed) and link pin front end. I am waiting to pick it up as currently I have no place to store it while I get it back and running. I will be repainting the car as well as it has been sitting for a couple years. It will also be made road legal. I am looking for new friends to go driving and off roading with when I get it going. I am looking forward to having A LOT of fun!!!

hahaha I have to get my car together yet Smile Its a complete car, but has been sitting in a barn since like 1985.. The engine turns over and everything fine with great compression, im gonna tear it down and recondition everything, check the cylinders and make sure they are OK... The frame is gonna get a couple added bars for safety and a fresh powdercoat, and I have to replumb all the hydraulics... SOON, the rear gets an IRS and boxed trailing arms and the front gets new everything... Hoping for a mid travel by the end of the year. The car should be ready for trails by mid november... I cant waite to get out there with you guys!

OH WOW sounds great man! thanks!! Do you know anyone good with a welder for installing the rear end and support bars? I am thinking im just going to go with making my own rear torsion as it seems like it would be stronger, but I have to do some more research on that. Any help any of you local guys can give me on info or maybe even do the welding (would be glad to pay if needed for a good job). Eventually I am hoping to make some good friends for trail riding here Smile

I have welder and am OK at welding, I can do small stuff. If you need a great amount and a great job see Bugzyla and his crew.

I am actually looking at adding new front shock towers to the frame for 10" coilovers, and tearing out the swing arm rear to install a custom IRS (stock for now), but switch to 3x3 arms in the rear again with long coilovers. Im not changing the front end yet, so I am planning on using a stock IRS rear for now when I can find one. I am looking to get it powdercoated soon, so yeah, there would be a little bit of work that would need to be done hahaha. That being said, I have actually been looking at some of their parts so ill give them a call to see what they say Smile How are you at rebuilding the engines? I havent really had a chance to touch a VW engine yet (I have built others), this thing has been sitting in a barn since 1985. its a 1776 with a weber progressive carb. It does turn over very well by hand and seems to have great compression, but I would rather replace the bearings and check the cylinder walls before attempting to start it up, so I thought id just take a weekend and tear it down to see where I am at. Are you interested? Im more then willing to help you out in any way as well, but for the moment, I dont have a garage, so thats where my problem lies...
