This is my newest build. It will be a long travel dune buggy, 2 seater, based on a 32 3 window coupe. A-arms on all 4 corners, powered by an 06-g6-v6 (240 hp) with a 6 spd transaxle out of the Pontiac g6. Should have about 20 inches travel all around, paddle tires for sand.Street tires probable off a newer mustang for the street. And all done on a mild budget.
More pics coming.

Thanks for pic's,yeah i get the idea i think,will be watching of course
How is trans working out with LT and diff offset?not familiar with this trans so i'm guessing it's no problem but most i see have diffs a long way off centre so you'd end up shifting motor a heap to one side or end up with crazy wide track width
Not sure your jack is up to the job though

Yea, the engine ends up offset a lot and crazy wide track.Everything else will be mounted on the left to offset the engine. With paddles it will just fit on trailer. Street tires will be on offset rims to narrow it up.
The jack..." never send a boy to do a mans job"

I thought from the beginning that people will love it or hate it.
Thanks

Some more progress, mocked up with blue tape, then welded up "grill shell", then tacked it on. This should give you a little more of where it's heading.
