Agent.....Just for information...dont try to weld over that floor...

Here's mine then....

and the tear down/rebuild thread on a rodders forum

http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/...ad.php?t=320267

Started with a Vette front steer clip, then got airide on all four corners. Then gotta 300HP 350/t350 and chopped the top 5" in front and 4.5" in back...then I drove it for 10 years. Along the way it became what you see in the top pic.

The rebuild includes, rebuilding everything that is done and not going to be changed. The frame is getting detailed out and painted, the truck was sectioned (cut in half) and 2.5" taken out of the middle. The hood was pancaked the same 2.5" (lots o work). A/C, chrome and aluminum fins all over the engine. Three duece offy intake with progressive linkage. Full rebuild of the engine for a dyno'd HP rating of 465HP, full port and polish, windage trays, full roller valve train backed up by a 4L60E and a 8.8" rear with moser guts. Power windows, power brakes (disk all four corners)

More body mods include, Ttally de-seamed and smoothed, remote entry, frenched headlights, 39 Ford tailights (frenched) a mid 90's S10 bed that was shortened twice and narrowed once and the 49 fenders grafted on. The original beltline from a sacrificed truck will reverse the S10 body line to make it match the cab. Full metal hard top tonnoe (SP) bed cover with jackscrew actuators as well as a retractable license plate that will raise and lower from the space between the bed and the cab (not enough room under the truck), raised bed floor that wraps around the aluminum moon style fuel tank and smoothed the inside of the bed.

Full custom interior and metal work with a hardshell headliner is forthcoming as well as all hidden wiring, A/C Hoses and control as well as hidden airide controls.

Lots o work...needless to say my heli's have been getting neglected

Anyone can restore...Let's see what your made of with a saw, welder, english wheel and a shrinking tool.

Just to ease everyones mind...check out the build thread, this truck was CLAPPED out....I dont feel guilty cutting it up in the least. I replaced pretty much the entire low end of sheet metal as well as the firewall (when I first got it on the road) due to it being crashed HARD prior to me getting it.

Ask your Doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

Our "hot car" is a 1970 VW Bug modified as a Baja Bug. My wife and I did everything with the exception of the white powder-coating on the nerf bars and light bar.

The chassis pan is a '74, ball-joint front end. The suspension has been altered from torsion bars to coil-overs on all four corners. Disc brakes are from AC Industries.

The body is a '70 Type 1 Sedan. All bodywork and modifications were made by my wife and I, including the paint. The paint is basecoat/clearcoat by Martin Seymour, shot through a HVLP setup.

The interior features a denim headliner and door panels. The rear seat bottom and back are also denim. A full class 11 roll cage is installed. Seats are by Hunsaker, as are the 5-point restraint systems.

The engine in the photos is a modified 1642 cc single carb with a Tri-Mil Bobcat extractor exhaust and transmitting its power through a Kennedy clutch. The rear suspension is independent trailing arms.

An interesting note is that the area of the rear cage in which the license plate is "frenched" is actually the bottom of a baking pan!

Since these photos were taken, I've built and installed a 1835 cc twin carb engine. There is not one part of this new motor that is VW. Even the engine casings are aftermarket aluminum rather than the stock magnesium. This engine is MUCH stronger than the 1642. Right now, the 1642 cc motor is awaiting a dune buggy project that needs a motor.

Agent,

yup....well, used too. this truck build is takin up every waking moment of my time. bottom line, I got to the point that I was gonna sell it, or finish it...IE I'm sick of workin on it. welp, originally I tore it down to throw a gloss job on it and it kinda snow balled...

Check out the build thread and you'll see basically where I am, I found alot of old damage that I didn't know was there and had to fix. I havent updated the thread in awile and am further than where it sits on the build thread but you'll get the idea...as much as I'd like to drive it right now...trust me it aint possible. Hope to have it done in 8 months to a year. My interior is scheduled to go in in 10 months and it's gotta be drivable by then....

Ask your Doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

Salty: well i hope that you get it done soon becuase that is one sweet truck and i hope that you get flying again good luck on both projects.

gmcullan: That is one nice bug, im in the middle of a restoration on a 71 super beetle and like salty its kinda snowballed but no going to custom with it just a nice street machine. There has been a place in my heart for VW beetles the first time i drove one back in high school and i have owned 2 since then. very nice car keep up the good work.

Leady,

Dude, I'm not much of a ricer guy.....but that thing is SWEET! (disclaimer I'm into anything that goes fast and has 4 wheels....hell even two sometimes, I just appreciate the non-obnxious non-trapper keeper type ricer's a whole lot more than the winged stickered wonders

Specs, more pics?

Cope,

How bout some pics of the whole thing....and some of that rear steer?

AgentOrange, thanks for your comments on the Baja. It's been a fun project and we have way too many trophies to show for it. Best of luck with your project. Old VW's are a great way to get into inexpensive hot rodding.

I should clarify, The 4x4 Labs "Rear Steer" Goes on the front. It moves the tie rod behind and above the front axle. This way the first thing to hit is your axle case, not tie rod. The Tie rod is controlled by the factory power steering and by holes drilled (By me, I built her with my own hands) in the 88 and up PS box. Those holes go to the 10,000 LB. ram that also connects to the tie rod. This way there is no pressure set back up the steering column. I can park with the tire right next to the curb and push the truck away with one finger turning the steering wheel. It also help when rockcralwing The wheel will not twist violently when a tire falls in a hole. ( The ram takes all the force) When jumping the truck if you land with the steering wheel turned just a little you're looking a broken wrists, Not with 5,000 LB.s controlling each wheel.

Check out 4x4 labs . com

I may still go to rear wheel turning. I have a spare front axle that I bought for that and almost all of the Hydro parts. (All it takes is a Front axle, Steering ram, Tie rod, and two way hydro valve. Lets not forget reverse cut gears in 4.88)

If you want to see what my truck looks like go to a poor part of town and look at any POS Yota. Mines just a little shorter...

Serious, When I tell folks it's my hot rod they laugh, Until I open the hood and fire her up.

Most folks these days judge books by their covers.....And paint aint never made no one faster. (Unless it's orange. The fastest color in the universe, and no my truck is not orange.)
