Tim I've been thinking for days how to do this. Just can't come up with anything. I'd go to a mechanic and ask if he had any ideas. Try posting in Baja forums too. Maybe current Baja drivers have ideas.

The have adaptors from a small four to a wide five

hey Tim been thru every avenue,and I mean ALL avenues converting my Baja Bug to a 5 lug. Do not go the adapter way. You will learn so much math when you try to buy rims. I am not kidding. Ive bought top of the line spacers from a mfg. They were very well machines, however they were more than 3/4" thick. It made the rims I wanted stick out way too far. Believe me Tim when I say this, I spent weeks dealing with this. What I did was put front and rear disk brakes. If you do this, make sure you go to a 4x5 pattern, not a 4x1.75. Trust me.
