Build Diary Fri Apr 15, 2011 Part 1

 

Hi everyone, just thought I would post a few pics of my buggy project here in the UK, still got a bit to do but the project is going well so far, without too many major issues (those will come when I try to get it registered for road use). The buggy has been designed by myself (and a good bit of CAD software) and is powered by a suzuki swift engine and box.

Anyway I have a LOT of build pics over on my build site but here are a few to get you started :-

Day 1 280 feet of 1.25" (32mm if your in the UK) 2mm wall ERW tube - it dosent look much once its chopped up!
