    BajaMike got some fancy LED headlights. I wired them up over the weekend. DSCF1232DSCF1237

    are they the Land Rover Defender ones? I’ve thought about putting them in an off road Bay.

    Ebay universal 7”. I think they list them as fitting Land Rover as well as jeeps.

    I had to trim a few cooling fins on the back side to get them in the mounting bucket.

    BajaMike got his bumpers back from powder coating in near chrome. We installed them and wired fog light. She’s pretty much done minus some longer headlight adjusting screws.

    You guys have any specs on that baja as far as suspension goes? Tire size? I’ve always wanted to build one and theres a shell just down the road from me, already cut with the fenders and narrow eye kit like that and its been sitting under a barn for the 3.5 years Ive lived here and never moved.

    That thing would look bad-ass in the garage next to my Jeep!

    Front is a 6 inch wider beam with torsion adjusters, reinforced stock spindles, stock torsion arms, aluminum tie rods with international ends, Saco steering box, About 8 1/2 inches of travel, 235/75/R15 tires.

    Rear has 3 x 3 trailing arms, 930 CV joints, no torsion adjuster, 31 x 10.5 R 15 tires, and 18 inches of travel.

    it also has a 3 inch body lift on it.

    We started building this car right around this time last year, in this thread, if you want to look back.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Yeah, those someday guys are a pain. It took me a while to get past that point on my own projects and move them along so others can finish them off.  I still stop by once or twice a year to check in with a guy like that near Gateway who has a split bus that has been sitting for over 20 years.

    I have a 3 inch body lift for my ’65 and about to slap the body back on the pan. Did you guys (or on John’s cuz he’s running stock steering box) have to do anything crazy to make stock steering linkage work?  I imagine I’ll have to cut the firewall steering column hole, right? Thanks

    Yeah, dropping the steering column hole is all. Not hard.

    Baird brought his bus down yesterday for spring maintenance.

    Oil change, valve adjustment, new points, set timing, break adjustment, and a new Riviera Motors badge for his 63’ Riviera camper.AE603020-4B5F-4406-B6C8-13BCC6C7F2A91B1C04E1-1692-4C91-98C5-0244FC023EAB05DE3EE6-5B82-4AA9-A643-12E909D0CF93

    He picked up his bus and dropped off his T34 for the same treatment this morning. image

    We will build it if it comes.

    Baird’s t34 got a new piece of jewelry. A Jesse boyce badge from our local VW dealership. I’ve only ever seen 3 of them. This one came from California courtesy of Justin@critter1 found at a swap meet.

    I bet the wheels on the baja powderocated the near chrome would look fantastic.

    I think spun aluminum wheels are in the works.
