I want to build a baja of my rusty 1302.

I have found cheap baja kit, but it is a standard beetle kit.
What is the difference, and it is possible to modify?

I have searched but can not find what the difference is.

You might be running into something I just discovered (the hard way) that all fiberglass kits aren't for baja's.

I didn't think when I went to get a Craigslist deal to look close enough at the Front fenders I was buying. What I got are for a Beetle without a cut front end.

Was a little dissapointing when I went to put them on and discovered that I'd have to hack most of the front off to make them work, but would in the process lose the headlight buckets. Just not worth the effort and hopefully I'll run into someone that needs them.

I don't believe, other than suspension, that there was much difference in the fenders between Super and non-super beetle.

Good luck in Sweden!

Drive over there without your hood put the baja hood on and see if it is wide enough.

The shape of Super Beetle front fenders is substantially different from Standard or Deluxe Beetle fenders (All US delivery Beetles that Americans call "Standard" are actually "Deluxe". Thus the lack of bright trim on many German and other market Bugs.)
