the 2007 would be a great baja motor…. 😎 I know mine is worn the fuck out…. 😎 I kinda want to build a new baja, maybe I could just fix mine up again…. 😎 I want a sand scorcher again…. and an early body… I miss the sand scorcher… 😎 winter project! 😎FranzKeymasterSeptember 24, 2020 at 10:50 amPost count: 3913
You know how to fix air leaks on a late model dash? 😁NewboldParticipantSeptember 24, 2020 at 12:13 pmPost count: 73
With my race season all finished up I decided I better push this project back inside and get back to work on it! I don’t think I have touched it since June. Up first is finish the cheapo cage kit and reinforce it into the suspension. I am struggling with the cheapo body lift kit. I really like the lifted look but it fits about like a soup sandwich.volksaddictParticipantSeptember 24, 2020 at 7:45 pmPost count: 660
I think that is the best post 67 dash I have ever seen Franz! 😆WrenParticipantSeptember 24, 2020 at 10:46 pmPost count: 171
So Awesome! Love the trucks in type 1s but that’s the best looking type 3 I’ve seen!FranzKeymasterSeptember 25, 2020 at 7:56 amPost count: 3913
Looking good Travis, skip the body lift and let the tires rub.AndymParticipantSeptember 29, 2020 at 12:42 pmPost count: 956
What’s up guys!! It’s been a minute. I got landed some great paying customers for the balancing/machine shop. Everyone has been blowing my phone up, I’ll get back to y’all. Give me a minute to screw my head back on!!
So I sold the sandrail, I didn’t fit worth a dam in the car. Had about 1” above my head before the top rail. I still can come out and whoop on JJ with the 4 seater I did for my buddy a few years ago.
Picked up this 70 baja. Made more since, I can drive it on the street and off road, the rail was off road only. It’s a runner driver. Going to do a subi swap in it first, then do the 5.3 Chevy swap. I want heat and ac in the car.
I did some 3” lifted spindles on it, made some 3×3 rear arms, it already has a bus trans. 31” super swampers, cut the fenders, and jacked the back up. Made the tail light panel. Guess my picture order is backwards.

I think going link pin on the ball joint pan head would be interesting. Just make new trailing arms that are longer/wider to fix the beam spacing difference. I got 15” of ground clearance right now. Anymore and I’ll need to do some coil overs on the back to get that kinda lift. Front the beam is stock ball joint, just spindles.

Looking good Andy. Don’t make goofy arms. Section the pan head top portion/upper beam bolt down to link pin width. It’ll give you clearance for a saco rack and pinion. Install the electric power steering assist on top of that and you’re golden.
Kendall showed me a picture the other day from slettenengineering of a modified pan head.AndymParticipantSeptember 29, 2020 at 8:21 pmPost count: 956
Mmmm, I like your thinking franz. I wasn’t even thinking of that. That seems a lot simpler/easy to replace parts if need be.
Going to make some mirrors like the ones you had on your old red baja. I want to do some type of cage but not sure where to even start.

Here is that panhead mod I was talking about. They sectioned the middle of the pan head and dropped the top, so that beam is mounted lower than it would be on a link pin panhead. And you get some tie rod clearance too.John JonesKeymasterSeptember 30, 2020 at 12:50 pmPost count: 7335
When Franz started in this body I thought, “Shit, he should start with something else…” 😎 But now… it looks fucking awesome!!!!!!!!

Took the guns and vws out yesterday into a corn field. Man this 1600 is a gutless turd!!! Time to prep for the subi, then do the Chevy 5.3 once it’s ready.

Hope you’re planning to buy a Mendeola transaxle and 934 cv joints before Chevy junk.FranzKeymasterOctober 11, 2020 at 8:04 pmPost count: 3913
I welded radio brackets on the backside of the dash, and cleaned all the foam out of the c pilars. What a fun job. Another step closer.
