Been driving the Baja to work and it is so much better. The new tie rod ends, wheel bearings and balanced new tires smoothed out the ride.
Also loving the new dome light.
I knocked out the spare and jack mount.
hopefully won’t need the spare tire because it looks like it’s original to the bug. At least it holds air. Jack came from the green donor Subaru.
Bug also got new radiator intake vents to compliment the existing exit vents.
Dug my bender out of the snow because I want to fab a simple front bumper and mount a ebrae chinra 20” light bar next.
New cool guy kartek mirrors too.

That hood prop is awesome. Don't your dies and stuff get rusty?

Yea the hood prop stick was in the bug from previous owner, probably as old as that tire, no reason not to use it.

I can just wipe the dies and bender off with rag or green scotch brite.
Metal doesn't really rust here. Im probably pulling these numbers out of my ass but I think 8% humidity is considered dry, we average around 4%.
I can leave metal outside for a year and it will have less rust than when I would leave out 1 night in Elsinore.
