100 days to Baja and we need this rig there. Im going to push this thing in today and start getting the engine and trans bolted in so we can start fabing all the plumbing. Lots to do.ColeBModeratorDecember 26, 2017 at 10:15 amPost count: 1514
Awesome to hear! I’ll bring an iPad the end of this week so we can start thinking about where to mount it. Thanks for the update Pat! My mom is so excited to camp in this thing!John JonesKeymasterDecember 26, 2017 at 10:37 amPost count: 6423

Haha! You crack me up JJ. Just give in already. Not sure about this diesel action. That’s for smart dudes, I’m dumb.

trying to move this from apart…John JonesKeymasterDecember 30, 2017 at 6:44 amPost count: 6423
The motor is hanging on the tranny!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 For this to be ready for Baja… I think it needs to stay at the very tip top of the clean shop’s lists….. KB. we have a lot of mechanicals to figure out in the next 99 or so days… 😀kevinbParticipantDecember 30, 2017 at 6:50 amPost count: 41John JonesKeymasterDecember 30, 2017 at 7:47 amPost count: 6423
Thats funny.. 😀 There is nothing I have to add to this project. It is outside my skill level. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Except maybe that dent in the rear hatch.. I could handle that.. 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉RustabusParticipantDecember 31, 2017 at 9:02 amPost count: 1893
I’m with you John! I feel like I’m at a VW show looking at all the custom water coolers!! I can tell they are “built” and custom, but I have no idea what I’m looking at!!! 😉 😉 😀ColeBModeratorDecember 31, 2017 at 7:46 pmPost count: 1514
That’s a big vanagon! Such a cool stance with the new wheels and tires. New light bar too! ??John JonesKeymasterJanuary 8, 2018 at 6:36 amPost count: 6423
Peet has this syncro in his radar…. I heard. it needs to be in baja in 3 months or so.. 😉 😉FranzKeymasterJanuary 8, 2018 at 9:02 amPost count: 3451
I’m glad Pat is on it. Hes cleaning up the wiring. Next on my list is to figure out all the supplies I’m going to need to modify the coolant connections, build a intake manifold, air filter, and exhaust. Its going to be fun. Bunch of fab.FranzKeymasterJanuary 8, 2018 at 4:10 pmPost count: 3451
Just ordered $650 worth of tubing, bends, boots, clamps, and a muffler. I made some technical drawings for flanges to accommodate our custom manifold. Feels good to be making progress.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 9, 2018 at 5:49 amPost count: 6423
Peet and Franz are going to handle this rig and get it gone. 😀 No more vanagons!!! 😈 😈 😈 ever..FranzKeymasterJanuary 11, 2018 at 9:02 amPost count: 3451
This manifold we’re replacing with a simple pipe. Boxeer’s standalone is a simplified system without EGR or PDF. It has two electrically operated throttles that are no longer functioning with the removal of the emissions stuff.
