I guess this is as good a time as any to start my build thread on the Baja 5b.
I have a bunch of parts in but still have a long way to go with the ordering.
So far....

No doubt on the back brace, this thing is already heavy.

@Tunedpipe this is an awesome start to a new Baja 5B build. I can't wait to see the finished product and it's final weight. :D ;)

Thanks @WoodiE . Kind of a pain in the arse without diagrams. It's just a huge puzzle.
She is going up on a shelf and going to live her life there.
This is her sibling and she likes to stretch her legs out on the sand.

Thank you CT. I've been collecting parts for a long time and now it's finally starting to come together.

Thanks Gw. It has been a bit tricky. The diagram i have doesn't really show a lot and none of the parts come with anything, but then again none of them do.

Eventually I will because if you think I'm gonna sit here in my chair and say damn she looks pretty and not run it? pffftttt ;)
You better have a beautiful shelf to put that on!
Yes sir, I'm going to build a really nice shelf using black walnut.

Well, that would be my way of keeping myself from running it. I would have to tear it all apart and loctite it first 😜 But I completely understsnd. It would be very hard for me not to drive it at least once or twice.

Honestly it wouldn't bother me at all to tear it down and Loctite it because that's how much I enjoy wrenching on them than driving.
