YET ANOTHER VW IN THE FAMILY!!!! Smile you were a little worried weren't you? admit it!


well , as many of you know I had a 67 baja that was tons of fun, however it was from alaska and the rust was unbearable and I needed a real car(one with good ol' american conditioning!) so I sold the 67.. Now that I'm a manager at the local Micky D's, I have the funds to have both :P. So I picked up a 61 today. its clean. There are a few things I wanna do to it to make it better, and more personal. I'll get pictures up tonight along with more info. but as for now the list of things to do to get it all prettied up for bugorama are as follows:

1) FIX THE PAINT. The left door has some serious paint flake issues, but NO bondo

2) RE-DO THE INTERIOR. The interior is clean, but new carpet, door panels and sound deadener will go along ways. I also happen to be a car audio guru and I'm sure I'll make room for some 12's and what not Smile gotta have my kid side shine through!

3) WELD IN CROSS BAR TO THE CAGE. So I can get my crow's all set up.

4) PAINT THE REAR CAGE, FRONT BUMPER, SIDE BARS, AND EXHAUST. They just need some sanding and a quality coat of primer and paint.

5) GET A TRI-MILL EXHAUST; I don’t care for the original stingers. I’d like to find a chrome one.

6) CHANGE THE SHIFTER. I really like the scat short throw ones. (We have one in our 57 and its amazing.)

I believe that’s everything, maybe a custom, some-what low profile roof rack with some KC’s built in, but that’s a bit down the road.




Now that I'm not saving aluminum cans and mowing my ucles 2 acres of grass this project should be more fun and I can do it on my own.... well, atlleast my own styling and what not and like I saaid pictures will be up in a little, Smile might go play a bit if I get it home before dark. there's a field right across the street thats calling my name.

Alrighty guys. got my hands on the camera. I've driven it around town a bit just to put some miles on it and what not. I went to my uncles and found a couple things to have a bit of fun in. Here are some pictures..

Harnesses should be in by next week, just gotta bend the tube and weld it to the cage..I'm using .120 wall for the cross bar. I'm also looking around for some seats, but these aren't to bad. Just kind of an eye sore I guess.

When I paint the harness bar, I'm also going to get the side bars, front bumper, and engine cage powdercoated a satin black. I get powder coating done for free.




Have rear fenders for it, just need to go get some fender washers... when I paint the car I think I'll look for new ones though, as the ones I have are a bit rough..


New carpet will be going in it as well. I'm going to put a layer of the "rust stop paint" on the pan, just for extra rust protection. Than I'm going to put new carpet in it.. The back well area will be treated to some insulation padding stuff, and a solid layer of Second Skin Damplifier PRO. Which is heavier per sq. FT. than dynamat and works much better. It's also a local company and is much cheaper! I've learned alot about them from stereo stuff. I will also be putting it inside the door panels to help the resonance inside there. My last baja I just did the carpet, and I regretted it.

So she's pretty much a street queen until I get the cage on and fab up a skid plate.

As far as paint goes, I really like this color, so I think I'm going to have space age match it and get a gallon. Just redo the paint the same color.

IT'll be fun though, and I'm looking forward to it! I'll keep the pictures coming along with updates. I am kinda broke right now, as I emptied the piggy bank for the car. Insurance for both cars is due next week., and I'm taking the girlfriend to the cardinals game on sunday. But after that I'll really start making some head way, and get this thing going!

Awesome bug you've got there. A real play thingy.
Man I wish I lived in Phoenix so I could play in the mud with you guys.
But perhaps I'll be around someday. I do have family there. Wink

Nice looking project there. Hey, I have a set of fenders that would go real good on that car. They are the racing style baja fenders, so they sit up higher in the back. They are brand new, never been installed or even drilled. I paid $125 for them, but would make you a GREAT deal if your interested. Shoot me a pm if so. Run a build thread in the "Projects and Builds" section. We all like to see the progress.
