B to T projekt

Hello homies.

My t was not t when i bought it.
It was the original b model, and this is how it looked when i bought it and it was used for many years.

It had a lot of tuning parts on it of the day first when i got it.
Like ss model diff, shocks and darksoul extender kit, dark soul meaty drive shafts, turtle racing tranny plate and front top plate, ddm dominator pipe, rpm suspension arms.
I did drive it for a while for as b model though.
First things what i did, was to get rid off that purple color, i just dont like that at all.
So i did de anodizing the whole frame and all the alloy parts was first thing what i did.


Next thing was dyed those white rpm arms.

I also had this integy sandrail cage on it, but i did not liked.


Also bought pro-line desert rat body set.


My brother had a 5t, so i kind of get liked that truck look and i diseded to convert my b to a t.

So here we go.

First i had to dremel and drill those 5b model tr front shock mounts, i did not want to put extra money to t model ,because it was easy job to make it fit as a t.


First t model parts put on to the car.


I had that vrc silenced pro pipe also in one time..
Really good top end pipe, but not so good in low torque.





My two sons were also helping me in this project :D

Wind screen.

I did also made this plastic hull to secure the inside of the car, so that snow and other depriss would not get insede the car.




This blue 5t body i got from a Dutch baja friend i met in usa baja forum, i got it free :D
That guy was really cool dude...


My and my brother baja´s in the Finnins winter, cold but very nice to drive with spike tires.


And once a gain, my brother get´s me to a new motivation, he bought the chase cage :D

Well, i had to get that cage too, that is really nice part to have, adds a ton of the portection to a car.
I bought a white one, because i wanted to dyed my cage.


And i also bought kraken bullet fueler, must have if you use chace cage.
Dyind the cage was not so simple thing to do, but lucky me, we have small kinden, so we had kids bath tub.


Also bought chase rear shock towers and dyed them too.

In this picture i have this my old(seld all ready) woodster lids wide body what i painted in gulf theme.



In to this chase cage is nice to use your imaginations, and try your build something what you like..
I did this sand rail plan t :D

At the moment my baja looks like this ...
My old woodster body..



Plus, i got this new turtle v2 pull starter today.
Must have, i just hated those stock ones...




Please, dont ask how much dineros i have put it on to this, i dont even remember, and i my wife would find out, she would probably kill me :whistling:
But i have had a lot of fun and nice times to doing this..
And it is quite easily reversed back to the b if i want, but i doubt that i want to do that :walklike:
Especially that chase cage make this car so secure to the engine and other parts, that i dont think im going to miss my old b anymore.
If i would, i would buy new one for that..
Bought cars have them good and bad sides, but i think this is what i wanted... :freunde:

Vielen dank meine freunde ;)
I did named that black box as a frankestain, because that boxy look :D
It did hold quite a bad hitting when i was driving it, and i had no body on the car at all.
But they are not show in this video.

Im not sure what kind plastic that is, but i just can not brake it even it would be in a freezer all night long.
It is really flexible and durable stuff i have ever seen.
For sure im not need it now when i have chace cage, but i have that same stuff in the panels on that chace cage :D

Guten tag meine liebe Deutsch freunds.
I have done some mod to my baja...
Chase cage color is not anymore orange, it is now dark brown :D
I wish it would be black, but dyeing it make it dark chocolade dark..
Reason of that was that i did dyed it to orange firtst time, and now when i try to do it black, that old color back fired it..
But it still quite nice, or what do you think?





And every vehicle must have head lights on the dark time, right :D

Hello guys,

How are you??
Fine, how about you?

We are preparing for the show in Friedrichshafen (01.11.12 - 04.11.12) . It is there an exhibition model and we demonstrate our Bajas.
There is a racetrack in the courtyard. We are there to bear a race, have a lot of fun.
I prefer the Rit, really awsome.
