Started my baja build and wanted to share some pics.
I hope you enjoy watching my build this summer...
started with your basic fender removal...







then made my cuts...






have you ever washed your baja only to cut your hand all up on the sharp edges? I have.... decided to soften those edges by welding square stock to those areas...










Have always wanted to do a watson steet wiring kit so I stripped out all the old wires for a new clean, comprehensive fuse box and wiring harness...





welded all the holes in the trunk that have been drilled through out the years and where the old fuse panel came through the dash... a little por 15 rust encapsulator...lots of sanding then painted the trunk door jams and under the dash...









more to come....

the bug is a 1970. its funny, I never realized when I removed the dash cover for painting that underneath was the metal dash that the earlier bugs have. It looked like volkswagon simply added the padded dash right over the old metal one with virtually no modifications.

Spent a little time making a shelf for where the front apron and body meet. cut and Riveted Aluminium diamond plate then sealed the gap with seam sealer. cant count how many screw drivers and small parts I've lost through this little black hole on past baja's.
