Well, it's not done but the sun is out, rain's coming, so I took advantage. Enjoy.





Phone number is blurred so I don't get calls from random Googlers.



The "in-town" exhaust fits nicely in the luggage bin.





I was gonna throw out this old bottle of Tamiya Deck Tan because it's getting thick and clumpy. But you know what else is thick and clumpy? Mud.

Love all the details.Especially the very realistic rusthole on the side.

What are you going to do with the '42'?

That's a good question.

I have a feeling there's a road warrior/zombiepocalypse build coming up.

I wouldn't know; the pleasure of full-auto has eluded me so far. That's probably a good thing.

Let's get some fiddly details now:



Since my hood hinge sucks (I can only get the lid open about a half inch before it hits the windshield) I went with a lift-off, and for that you need rubber hold downs.



They don't look like much, but the three of 'em took almost 4 hours to make.

Now with actual Baja bugs...





Gotta have the wiper smear



The bugs themselves are easier than I thought. Clear green + coffee grounds. The paint is still wet in the pics, it will flatten out when it dries, just like a dead bug.

Wait, I ain't done yet!

Thought I'd try my hand at some more functional stuff:



Sun visor (action is a bit stiff, but it does work)



This one's tricky. Start by popping out the wing windows, trimming the frame and drilling holes in the door frame. Use the window as a template to make a frame. CA the brass rod to the frame and trim off the bits you don't need.



Glue the glass back in. Not shown is the .040 quarter-round on the inside.



Install by bending the assembly to line up the brass rod with the holes. Congratulate your self and then realize you have to do the other side now.

nah, for the truly ghetto bug experience you end up like one of my buddies where the vent window was silliconed shut to keep it from leaking.

as opposed to an old f-150 i had where the vent window was cardboard sealed with duct tape.

Sometimes less is more. In this case...



... one less trim ring. A little damage done getting it off, but it's in character so it stays. One of the advantages of building a beat-up model.




Passenger side wing window



And no Baja is complete without an EMPI sticker.

I think I'm gonna call it done now. It's getting dangerously close to junker territory and I don't want it towed away by the civic authorities.
