Took the wife on a cruise for our 10th anniversary last week but now its back to the buggy. I made a little progress today.



And the UPS man made a small delivery today! I can start on my suspension as soon as I get the frame finished.

Well its going slow but I made some progress this week, let me know what you think.



Its going to be a busy summer, hope to get some work done but it may be slow going especially since I'm almost done with the frame. Thanks for looking.

I got 3 of the 4 A-arm mounting plates cut yesterday, cutting out the tabs is a pain. Does anyone know if these are really necassary or are they just to aid in assembly?

interesting that sounds like something i would do i havn't built a chassis yet but i wll be and ill take that into consideration

Looks good so far. I wonder why they call for all that square. I would think the A pillar would continue to the floor. I bet that suckers stout in the middle. You gonna build the spool like the plans? Or do a 930 spool? Or what ever cv you like. Protodie offers a spool that seems rather reasonably priced for the quality.

CHUCKORLANDO, I am still trying to decide what kind of spool I am going to use, I am thinking about the 930. I want it to be street legal so I will have to have reverse but I can not afford an RPM FNR so will probably go the starter route for reverse. Thanks for looking.

Wow, what a great project, I am going to have to follow this! I hope to one day build one. Question: would it be worth doing a full size mock up out of 2x2 lumber for someone who has never built something like this before?

Thanks roadrider. The 2x2 mock up may help with the getting the miter cuts correct the first time and cutting the suspension & drive train plates would help with mock up of your drive train, sure wouldn't hurt anything.

3/4in pvc pipe would be far better. You can heat and bend pvc.

Buggymike1976,
Sadly I had to sell the frame due to some personal hardships. I hope to start another one soon though.
