Default Busy, busy, busy...

Life has been busy. (Being a newlywed and all).... But I finally have time to obsess over the Baja again.

So the Baja is still running strong! Just turned 186,000 miles! I have big plans for my little truck. Now that it is back up to "code", I can focus on the toys...
I have 4 KC day-lighter off road lights coming in the mail soon. After that I will start planning and executing my custom front bumper.
Long term plans are to have the bed and cladding sprayed with Line-X. When the little 4 banger lets go, (or should I say "if"), I'm planning to transplant in a 3.0/3.6 H-6 from an Outback. If monies allow, I will also convert it to manual trans. Already on the lookout for a donor car.
Here is a sketch of what I am planning.... Enjoy!



I know it sounds ambitious, but I am a technician, so I can do all the work myself.

(My dealer just got a 2003 Baja in the same yellow as mine, but with a manual trans! I am thinking of working out a trade....)
