Stuff you have made at home

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

That is probably why we are not liked by some because if we can figure out a way to make it ourselves we do. That my friend is cool.

BTW kcnaz, thanks for posting here in the ORF, would like to see more from you.

Craig, You da man! I wish Unca Bob had seen your batt. tray before he designed his! I liked yours so much I ordered the 'sliding tray' options but can hardly get the caps off of the second batt for filling. BTW, how do you get in and out of your Baja when its in that enclosed trailer...? :P
Here's mine...Image

I have a camper...but what sucks is the batteries are kept inside under the table, in one of the storage spots...kind of a lame idea. Oh well.

Having a Baja justifies the Camper. Just wish I had the camper 20 years ago when my Baja first hit the road! :cry:


Also, with the camper, its much easier to get Mama to go to the desert! :lol:Image

Good job on the first two, looks like it worked except for the big heads and shiny eyes :lol: Enjoy them now why they do not know everything.

But anyway, on this is there a reason, you know something we should or just playing on the safe side?

Yea, all the jumping broke my lower engine to trans studs. During the current strip, mod and paint session, I discovered my front solid mount was cracked too (probably pre engine mount), so definately needed.

Here is a 24" sheet metal brake for light gauge small jobs on the car. The plans came out of Mother Earth News. Works great. :D
