Default Finished (...almost) Sand Scorchers together

I finally got around to putting the grey one back together after a clean up, and have pretty much finished Wide Eyes after making a rear bumper up for it; just the wheels to sort out now! Anyway, I thought it'd be fun to take some shots of the two together to compare the body shapes. Note that the bodyshell on Wide Eyes is mounted a lot lower than on a normal SS hence the increased ground clearance and camber yet similar overall height.











Thanks for looking, comments most welcome!!

It makes it more real though! Although VW usually flatten when they are driven a little. I hope to own a SS some day. Lookin nice, wide eye looks sweet.

I think im getting a Baja or Street bug for my first 1:1 I want baja, but kids at school will mess with the open "hood"

looks good, but im still wondering how you got better clearance out of a lower body..... looks good tho, i do think the wide eyes look a tad bit better too....

Leorosa: Good for you. I've still got my real one and it looks pretty similar.

Truckerbuddy: The suspension on the grey ones set up with quite a low ride height to allow for more droop in the travel (it's the one I use a lot). The bodys mounted normally. The wide eye one sits at nearly full extension (hence the camber at the rear) but the bodys mounted lower on the chassis.

CustomCrawler: Security isn't a baja's strong point! I'd never leave mine parked on an open road or car park for a long time, especially with kids about, it's bad enough at VW shows!
