This is a new build your own class. Tony and his son Mike are from Ohio and they came to our school to learn how to build a tube chassis A-arm baja bug. We supply all the 1 1/2 DOM .120 wall for the cage and all the 4130 for the suspension. They already have two weeks in the project and the cage is almost done. They are doing the accelerated course, Mon-Fri 8-5 pm. Let me know what you think.

The thickness for the front bulk head is 3/16's. We just finished the shock mount bulk head and thats made from .120 4130 with a doubler plate around the shock mounting area.

I was wondering the same thing! I guess Tony's dad baught the car new and converted it to a baja. Somehow the tail lights ended up on the roof. I taked them into taking them off when they get home.
