Can you give me a price estimation to shorten the wheelbase to 105.5 on my baja? I planned to do it myself but if you're looking for side work pm me a price. Figure it cant hurt to ask.

I organized my spare parts this afternoon, I had some leftover parts that I don't need. Thought I would post them up here if anybody was interested, great to grab some spare parts you don't have for your own car, or a project you got going on. I'll make anybody on here a smoking deal.. I'm thinking between $5 & $20 for things depending on what it is, or you can buy the whole lot for $100 minus the coil springs. PM me if interested. I can ship or bring to next race.

2.5 in. coil springs (for a 2.0 shock) - random lengths and rates
Heavy duty hydraulic scissor jack with desert base plate and extension for tall off-road cars (had in the old baja)
Seat belt eye bolt hardware kit (with washers, eye bolts etc) brand new
chromoly axle 930, don't know length, I can measure if interested
Intake manifolds, alum air cleaner brackets, dual carb linkage & plates
4 puck clutch
009 coil
2.5 inch. coilover shaft boots/guards (brand new), a pair
930 CV housing
throwout bearings (2)
air cleaner (shorty) cover (red, brand new)
Limit straps - length unk. some new some used. Zac, what length are the ones on the front of your 12 car?
Baja bug window nets (brand new)
"chasecam" lipstick in car camera
radio weld in bracket

All parts used but working unless stated otherwise

Erik,
I am interested in the dual setup as well as the throw out bearings. I'm buying a bug for the street and I might be able to use them. I might have to cruise by, look at your new car and get some dimensions off of these.
