I’ve been plugging away at this a little every day this week.
Final roof bar done.
Cut gussets for upper part of the cage and burned them in on the top side.
Knocking out the last two uppers tonight.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesModeratorMarch 26, 2021 at 7:25 amPost count: 7992
I’m digging the creativity that goes into these cages.. it’s not a one size fits all kinda thing like it used to be.BBWBParticipantMarch 26, 2021 at 9:21 amPost count: 1069
Pat’s kicking ass! I see Dan has got himself a Baja now too. More work for KCW.

Give him a little nudge Dave… He has been overwhelmed with regular work lately.. work has been piling up again… I fear I’m gonna have to get back to it!!!
Shocks seem to be back ordered like a mofo…. Dave what Brand shock do you prefer?? and is that no matter the class, or do have 11 favorites and class5 favorites?Pat KModeratorApril 14, 2021 at 8:49 amPost count: 2067JasonSParticipantApril 14, 2021 at 12:07 pmPost count: 198
Pat it is looking awesome! I hear you about parts shortage, I am hearing 12-15 weeks for FOX Shocks for the bus.
I will have some questions on a roll cage since my Baja choice has changed form a 69 hard top to my first car a 69 convertible. If I am going to sell one might as well be the hard top and keep my first car. Wife approved but the only requirement is roll cage.Pat KModeratorMay 6, 2021 at 7:19 amPost count: 2067
Riley and I started working on this again. Swapped out the stock trans cv flanges for 930s, and bolted it in. Going to start setting up the rear suspension.

Bus trans + 930 axles are the cat’s pajamas!
….King Dave, tell us about gear ratios….class5/1600 with 33” tires.
I’m looking at the Weddle 5.14, 5.43, 5.50, or 5.86 ring and pinion to get first and second gear down.
I hear the 5 rib 4.86 is strong but kind of tall.BBWBParticipantMay 6, 2021 at 10:48 amPost count: 1069
Get some safety glasses on that kid. Hate to see an eye injury.

Rear suspension mock up underway this morning.
Chopped the spring plate stops.
Need to trim down the pivot busing sleeves. I’m sure this will be one of many little “problems” I’ll have to work through in this process.
We will build it if it comes.OmarParticipantMay 8, 2021 at 5:40 pmPost count: 25
Glad to see you get to have “me time” and work on some of your own stuff once in a while!John JonesModeratorMay 9, 2021 at 7:42 amPost count: 7992
I’m glad to see Pat on this. He’s spent a fair amount of money and time also, he’s invested, hype has been raised..
Lets do this! 😎AndymParticipantMay 9, 2021 at 10:34 amPost count: 979
Looks great Pat!! I love my big monster baja bug. It’s not a race car, but it’s fun to go beat on. Subi 2.5 with a bus trans 31” super swampers.
