Baja Rebuild Diary - February
More News About My Baja 4th February 2002
I have ordered my Dragway Centerlines, and hopefully they will arrive before the end of the week. I want to have them before this sunday to be ready for the "dubs by the pub" vw run. See http://www.blbvw.org.au/ for more info.
My carpets are done, and look very flash. I have almost finished my running boards too. I have finished all the steel bar work of the running boards, and have painted them, I just need to buy some checker plate to go on top. I'll take some pics this sunday and post them.

I went to the dubs by the pub show today, and won best baja and best modified
interior. I think a purple kombi should've really got best interior, but the
judges really liked my flamed speaker pods .
I have since been told "the reason you won best
modified interior was because of your attention to detail. Yes the purple kombi
looked cool but he had a lot on unfinished edges and crooked sewing. The judge
had a chat to him and gave him some pointer which he greatly appreciated. It was
between you two. So it appears that the judge appreciated your anally attentive
attention to detail, and it paid off" Thanks, I think.
My running boards are finished and look very nice. The alloy checker matches the shinny mags. They are strong enough to stand on.
I think this will be basically my last entry in the rebuild diary, as the car is as finished as it will ever be. I will continue modifying things, but they will be more mods, rather than part of the rebuild.
