Post Post subject: My 70' Full Fender Baja Project

For some time now I've had some feelers out there for a type 1 that I could build a full fender (Type 82e style) baja out of. My mom happened to be surfing Craigslist when she found a 70' Type 1 roller and texted me the info. Well luck would have it that I was the first one to call and make an appointment with the gent selling it and boy oh boy was I shocked when I got to his house. The Bug was Super clean, no rust (Pan is rust free). The body, doors, fenders, and decklid had all been prepped and painted with Rustoleum High Performance Enamel. Just the Engine, Trans, shift rod, back and side glass were missing. Not too shabby for $300 Very Happy

Here is an album with some more pictures that are not linked below

The plan is to keep the full fendered type 82e style of look for this Baja. So I'm more than likely going to swap in a Type 181 Beam, Spindles, ect for the front end (that was originally in the car but was not included in the sale). This going to be a learning process, so I've been educating myself on all of this stuff and if any of you veteran Baja/Buggy owners have any suggestions please feel free to share (I would greatly appreciate it).

In the rear I'm going to go with Kaddie Shack's 10.5" Long-Travel Kit For Stock IRS Suspension:
shop.kaddieshack.com/I...IT-OR1.htm
So that means I've decided to run a Type 1 transmission at this present time.
A buddy has a freshly built 2110cc stroker that he doesn't have anything to throw in and is moving out of the state and offered if I pick it up its mine. So looks like I have a free engine right now.
