EVERYTHING is broke and they only want to fix the most imminent problem... Like a bandaid on a gun shot wound.. :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-#

I've had a few Baja's over the years, but the one I did with RGB's will always be the favorite. Awesome fun to drive.

Gen's 66 beetle in for mechanical resto. It has a 1835cc or something. I yanked the engine and sent it to Painter's for a rebuild. Her Brother put this machine together in the 90's...I remember seeing it around town when I was a kid. Geniune Porsche 356 steelies, and convertible decklid.

Senor Parks bus has had a problem with his battery draining while parked. I looked at his wiring months ago and laughed. It looked like a rats nest full of butt connectors and wire taps. I made him cut it out and start fresh. Wolfsburg West wiring harness and instructions are choice.

A welded fan shroud for Mr. Sain. Black paint was requested. I smoothed the face with mud, and covered in poly.

This blue buggy has its original gel coat in beautiful shape. True survivor car.

New scat engine with weird carbs. Easy to work on, but has the typical problem of low end air speed due to reversion. I tuned them the best I could. Gave them a healthy quick shot of fuel on the accelerator pump/nozzle to try to over-come the issue.
