  • Maritime:
  • that will get me into my favorite fishing spots without taking the CRV
  • Jan 11, 2019, 16:19:39
  • Maritime:
  • I figured out with the 27" tire and the 1.5" lift I'll net 5" of new clearance
  • Jan 11, 2019, 16:16:00
  • Maritime:
  • I then sold the 15" wheels and got a set of steel 14" with good winter rubber on them
  • Jan 11, 2019, 16:15:09
  • Maritime:
  • The Yaris came with 15" but I down sized. I had a set of alloys from my civic with the right size tire so no brainer. cheaper longer lasting rubber with 0 handling changes
  • Jan 11, 2019, 16:14:24
  • advCo:
  • The Bus has 14" wheels too. Its a weird size for bigger tires. Plus I need light truck or van tires because of the weight too
  • Jan 11, 2019, 16:01:15
  • Maritime:
  • Cool

  • Rider52:
  • Local Atlanta guy has an off road new Beetle. Lifted 3" in front & 4" in the rear. Roof rack on top and rear seat deleted for storage. He's running 15" wheels with General AT tires. He does a lot of metal detecting in our neighborhood and I'll try to get a picture of the bug next time he is here.
  • Jan 11, 2019, 15:25:35
  • Maritime:
  • I can get the General Garbber AT as well which I have owned and liked
  • Jan 11, 2019, 15:16:41
  • Maritime:
  • Those all are 27x8.5 R14 about 450-500 USD a set
  • Jan 11, 2019, 15:16:10
  • SONIC.:
  • I searched for weeks to find a decent option for the Jimny
  • Jan 11, 2019, 15:01:01
  • SONIC.:
  • I hope you have better luck with tires than I did. Finding aggressive mud tires in such small sizes is next to impossible here
  • Jan 11, 2019, 15:00:35
  • Maritime:
  • These too:
  • Jan 11, 2019, 14:55:34
  • Maritime:
  • found these. I like:
  • Jan 11, 2019, 14:54:19
  • Maritime:
  • We'll see, if I can score the motor cheap it will happen. if not the Baja will still happen when it need sneakers again
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:42:06
  • advCo:
  • Do it!!
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:34:09
  • Maritime:
  • Good excuse to swap LOL
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:30:49
  • Maritime:
  • I've got over 230K miles on the motor, my transmission is grinding a bit in 2nd and 4th and the clutch is a bit weak.
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:30:33
  • Maritime:
  • So I am looking to see if the local wrecker has a low miles corrola for the bits, cause why just put an LSD in the current engine when I can buy a swap. put it in that and get more power :-)
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:29:16
  • Maritime:
  • Should be, I also got on Yaris world to see what others have done. there is only 2-3 others who have done it but it's cool. The problem I came accross was the fact I can swap in a corrola motor with very little work to gain 30 HP and 40 ft lbs of torque that would make it crazy fun
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:28:04
  • advCo:
  • That was my plan for the Ghia but its going to fund the Bus build
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:26:37
  • advCo:
  • Baja anything is awesome
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:26:19
  • advCo:
  • That will be fun too
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:26:12
  • Maritime:
  • So instead I am going to Baja the yaris for mild off road and winter ground clearance. Roof rack, hitch and small trailer and it will be a fishing and camping rig and tote the mountain bikes etc
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:25:48
  • Maritime:
  • I took the little one I wanted to a spot with a huge gravel incline, like steep as hell and the sales guy said go for it. locked it in 4 low and it climbed right up. It was all set up with AT tires and a lift etc. I loved it. Wanted it so bad. But the cost + insurance to be my DD, which is fine cause my commute is at 50 MPH, was way to much
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:23:48
  • advCo:
  • Sweet, I finally found a good decklid for the bus. Now I can get the hinge panel replacement repair started
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:19:18
  • SONIC.:
  • Absolute beast off-road though. Weighs 1700lbs lol
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:19:07
  • SONIC.:
  • It's fun as hell, but would really suck as a DD. Top speed is about 55 before it starts to feel really unsafe and wrung out lol
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:18:40
  • advCo:
  • Yeah i love those little things
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:18:33
  • SONIC.:
  • This ones rhd too but here in the states insurance wasn't bad like 400 a year for liability and comprehensive
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:17:42
  • SONIC.:
  • Thanks Mike!
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:17:11
  • Maritime:
  • Justin! nice Jimny, I tried to swap my yaris for one of those but it was RHD and to insure it I would have had to pay 1500 a year just for liabilty so couldn;t do that. my yaris costs me 300 a year
  • Jan 11, 2019, 13:07:26
  • advCo:
  • Having fun learning the sheet metal forming and welding the thin stuff
  • Jan 11, 2019, 12:35:12
  • advCo:
  • Thanks man. I'm trying to do a little bit every day. It would be moving a lot faster if I had a garage.
  • Jan 11, 2019, 12:30:05
  • SONIC.:
  • love it. Bookmarked. Keep it rolling
  • Jan 11, 2019, 12:28:03
  • SONIC.:
  • preaching to the choir here!
  • Jan 11, 2019, 12:21:25
  • advCo:
  • Yeah. I probably (definitely) paid too much for it, but I love the early Bays and I want to save it
  • Jan 11, 2019, 12:20:32
  • SONIC.:
  • You've got a project on yoru hands for sure!
  • Jan 11, 2019, 12:18:58
  • advCo:
  • Link to the thread on the Samba: [link]
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:54:19
  • SONIC.:
  • A lot easier to get to those and a lot less complicated shapes I'd imagine
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:54:14
  • advCo:
  • The bus has quite a bit of rust and collision damage but I've been fabricating panels and teaching myself how to metal shape and have made some headway on the rust repair
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:53:48
  • advCo:
  • Yeah, they were just so prone to rust and in very difficult areas to repair with the unibody. It needed the entire roof grafted on, the parcel shelf in the rear was completely gone, heater channels, etc.
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:53:02
  • SONIC.:
  • I hear that I've got an E30 that may well be there too, but I'm holding out hope that one of these days I find time to mess with it
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:52:17
  • advCo:
  • The Ghia (s) were too far gone that I decided to part them out unfortunately
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:51:04
  • SONIC.:
  • I've always wanted a bus
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:50:10
  • SONIC.:
  • and the ghia?
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:49:59
  • advCo:
  • I'm also restoring a '70 VW Bus so any free time goes to that
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:49:42
  • advCo:
  • Nice! Yeah my business had been primary income for the past few years, but my big client fell off the map early 2018, so I got a 9-5 job. Now I'll have both
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:49:19
  • SONIC.:
  • picked up this little guy to tow behind it
  • Jan 11, 2019, 11:48:08
  • SONIC.:
  • going well, did all 4 drum brakes last weekend. Fuck that jazz, took all day to get them right
