Post by brucerodz on Wed Dec 26, 2012 12:24 am

Greetings All!!! Hope y'all won't be too hard on a guy from the left side of the Hooch. Laughing I'm Dave. Retired Army mech & current Government employee @ Ft Benning. Been turning wrenches on all kinds of stuff for over 40 years but, this is my 1st VDub. I have a 76 Standard w/ baja kit on it. Plan for it to be a Volksrod ----make that Bajarod build with Military inspiration. Will post pics when I get them over to Photobucket.

Good Luck on your first VW! Don't hesitate to ask questions; These are peculiar little cars that will run and run, but only if they're put together right

Thanks for the kind words.
Jon,,,,right now it's a stock 1600DP with the stinger. Have a set of dual Kads for it. Just add linkage. And the stinger is going too.
my kaddies


redneck_davis,,,,,not sure on rim width (at least 8"). They may become available at a later date. I plan to go at least 10" wide on the tires further on down the road. This will by no means be an off road baja. Paint will be an Army green similar to Kurt's baja.

Hood painted Army green,,,,this is actual Army paint
