Hello everyone. I am not new to VW or to air cooled stuff but this will be my first Baja build. I will be leaning on your experience to get through this build. I hope that's cool. I picked up a 65 Beetle with a Baja kit on it. I will post some pics as soon as I get a chance. I can't wait to get started and get s,e great advice from you guys and gals. Thanks

Here is a pic from the day I picked up the purple people eater. And another pick after I unloaded it and drug out a spare engine I had laying around. My first question is the headlight openings are larger than a typical VW headlight. Where can I find a headlight bucket to fit?

Welcome to AZBaja. Looks like stock early buckets would fit , you would have to cut them out of a set of fenders.

OK,

Brand new guy here, Ive done a few street bugs in my time and since then a few Pro-touring cars and a handful of fun car projects. As I got older I strayed away from the VW scene, and now I want to get back into it with a specific build in mind. I thought what better way to get myself antiquated then by joining a website and sharing info.

At this point I have nothing to start with...lol. But the end goal is an Eco Tech powered Baja dual purpose ride, no top, ability to have 4 passengers, mid travel and widened stance.

2 biggest question are...is a 74 to new for the majority of the suspension parts I want to achieve this with?

And would it be better/easier to find a convertible to start with, rather then removing the top and welding in all the structural needs of a regular coupe..are they same pan...I cant imagine they are.

You may want to start a new thread in the new member forum. This tread is just me introducing myself.

Welcome to AZBaja Yasha Good luck on your build.

I've never seen a bugkit like that. Pretty cool and I'm interested to see how you make those lights work. Smile
