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.
