hello everyone. im new here im on the samba so some of you might have seen my build.

anyway i started with a 72 and a 69 vw bug i bought for $200 i turned around and sold the 69 for $200. i was planning on using the 72 but it was to far gone. so i took everything out of it and kept the pan. i then bought a 65 bug for parts and a 66 to rebuild. right now im working on the 66. im in the middle of doing a irs conversion on the 66. my plans are to use the 1600 dp engine out of the 72 and the engine.

heres the 72


heres the 69


heres the 65


and heres the 66 im rebuilding







heres the irs conversion ive was working on























so im hoping to get the other irs bracket in on friday and getting the engine and tranny in. let me know what you all think and any advice or comments thanks

Yay for SLC, up here in clinton, we really need to get some more people on here from our area. looks like things are going good on your conversion, welcome, and if you need any parts, i have a 65 in the garage next to my 70 that i am working on.

Welcome to AzBaja. Nice work so far can't wait to see it done and in action. Make sure all your welds are solid or water will intrude in the horns and rot them out.

ya i want to go but i have to work. the only thing i really have is a bunch of stuff out of a 72 bug and like 5 doors and a rear hatch

HuggingxCorners: i was hoping to get it done by this weekend but due to working everyday and not having time and have an unexpected car repair on my other car it probably wont get done for a month or two. i need it done asap tho because i need it for my second job as a pizza delivery driver at nights so its gotta be done soon

thanks everyone for looking and the support will update soon when i get stuff done

One of my doors is not opening very well, so i might be in the market for one, drivers side, but i'm going to try some dw40 and some other things first. Are you going to keep that roof rack i saw? maybe we could do some trading, I ave some things but probably not as much as you do. also if you need anything special at the swap meet i can keep my eye out for you.
Hopefully i'll get my baja running for the first time tomorrow. Hope to see you cruising yours around soon too., what part of Utah are you in?

oh ya i might need some dash parts too for my 71, particularly the dash panels that goe beside the speedo on the right and left.

(the outside section of the heater channel) pm me and ill give you my number and we can look at some buying and trading
