thought you guys might be interested in this one,
this is a space frame i fabricated for a customer,
its a off road buggy, or dune buggy, theres a 1.3
corolla engine going into it, but the customer is
putting a glanza turbo engine in in the future.
its a full custom mandrell bent frame, made from
1 7/8th tubing, and 1 1/2 tubing. on this one im
only doing the frame, and all suspension mounting
the engine and fab work, should be a prety
cool little machine. its my first off road buggy so
i learned as i went, functionally its good, but there
are a few things id change if i was building another.
plus, this was built using car parts as the customer was on
a budget, so thats the reason for shit shocks, and
finished the rear shock turrets
made them out of 1 1/2 tube, and just triangulated
them back to the main frame. there very strong and
should hold up well in a roll.
rear wishbones, lca 4'' longer, and tube inside for strength
frame and front suspension, alot more support bars left to go in,
gusseting. but ya get the idea
