    Great thread. Wish I had a buck for everyone I cut up! Would be at least enough for a good steak dinner and a movie!!

    I love the satellite on the roof rails!

    Must have a killer media install.

    Now that's funny.... It could come in handy with a long time spent out in the middle of no where.

    I just came across this build, can't wait to see how it turns out. I have a couple V-dubs too. 65 and 73 baja.

    This one I have beat to hell, it's been all over the mountains and desserts of socal. Its always got me where I wanted to go and back.

    Looks good so far.... Good luck with the rest of your build. Keep us posted.

    your baja isexactly the mental image i have in mine to go through mexico/central america with. with the exception of a custom roof rack for a roof top tent, or platform for a 1 man tent.

    I took a bug body off one pan to use it and had to dispose of it, so I put it on top of my other bug as the heater tubes fit in the rain gutters. I tied it off front and rear and drove it off to the salvage yard. A couple in an MG began following me, passing me and taking pricutes. I soon saw my picture in the newspaper with all kinds of captions. Maybe he has a large family and needed a double decker, etc. So, yes you can have a two story bug.....LOL

    Best thing about the baja is that if you don't have a full tank of gas and you get stuck, you can get out and just lift the front end and point it in another direction and take off! I miss my old bugs as well, pure fun!
