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.

There's yer 2 story bug!
Any update on this? have been creeping on this build for a while.
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
