My mate Bill donated 4 x All Terrain part worn Cooper Dueller 255/70/15 tires for the Baja. Cheers Bill













Front tires are taller than usual so will keep them for now.







Sat up against the Bug









Just to mount the tires on rear rims

More work tonight.

Fitted the passenger door.

The old door screws came out amazingly well.

Must've been changed before in the past.

Only one screw gave me bother but after some drilling it started to turn with the drill Result!











Lovely solid door fitted.

Emptied the Baja today.

Had turned into a garden storage unit full of stuff I'll never need.

It's almost time to separate the shell from the chassis.

Floorpans and heater channels are shot.

Thanks to my mate Mark - the Baja now has 2 new heater channels and a passenger door skin.





To celebrate I cable tied the Regi on

Cant get near the Baja till the Cabrio is finished.
