Baja Bug: Body
Now all the metal has been chopped off, so now comes the fiberglassing. But before I do that, something else is needed: I want air conditioning!
At top right is the front frame, and those holes are original. Here a bracket is bolted on before the blower assembly.
Next photo is the AC blower ... the wheel-well and area were sprayed with some primer after being cleaned up.
• Next the AC condenser is installed. I can't imagine how it would have jimmied into a stock VW! But with the front off, not a problem.
• The last two images are close-ups of the condenser installation on the left side. It doesn't look pretty now, but fiberglass will fix that.
