I hope you mean you will install the dropped spindles upside down for more Baja clearance?

Phase one will be a dropped front and the rear turned down a notch plus big steels all round. I need a daily as the Skyline and the Hilux really come first for major love.

Hot 1641 motor on twin artichokes is available.

This is on the to-do list for when my youngest daughter needs a car.....so I'm keen to see how you get on.

Finding a half-decent Dub maybe half the fight though.

They seem to be one of the cheapest cars to insure, even for young'uns. Both the kids like it.

The lad might drive it when he's old enough, doubt stepdaughter would get her derriere in those seats.....

No, not like  those either.

Don't make me down there @scooters

Off to the big shed of VW goodness tonight, I may overspend.

I got dubs 2 of actually.... my feeling is they have to be outrageous because they are such awful death machines in stock form.

I always pine after this when ever I drive past......a rotting baja, but the panels should still be good.

Oh dear. Kind of digging the lace work though. Kind of. 4/10, could try harder.

I'm thinking radiused arch with folded, 'glassed lip. Street racer style.

Seats are Bernard Newbury's apparently. They are purdy comfy but not for those of a larger girth.

(library shot)

That's what my new window fitter best Beetle buddy said.

I said I'd swap for his Empi Ally T-Handle shifter, cash my way.

He said no. Crazy Dubbers aye.
