Nice work. That looks friggin sweet. do you think you can build me a cage like that for my buggy? that looks killer :Rockit:

One thing tho. those steering shafts seem to be at such an extreme angle. or is that just a funny angle of the pic?

X2 I don't see how that can work without binding.

In that pic it was binding. Since then he had the R&P mount cut down to get better angles on the U joints and get it centered up on the beam.

Thanks Mike.......
In that picture everything was just a mock up to see how everything would fit....... scratch
Since then there have been a couple of changes made to get everything to work correctly...... cheers
Except for the front beams and rear torsion housing everything was made in our shop...... Shocked
As far as building you a cage...we can do it-but we need to know what you want and get a few measurement
to get things to fit right....... Question
We'll get together through PM's if you want and discuss it if you like......... Idea

I think he looks lost because it looks as if the buggy doesn't know which way it wants to go Twisted Evil

Over the last couple weeks we've gotten pretty much all the welding done on the frame......
(except for building the rear engine cage for it)
Got a place to mount the battery...
Got a frame work for mounting the gas tank....
Had to remove some things and relocate others.....

And a few days ago I (finally) got the frame painted.
Hopefully the body will be painted by the end of next week....

Is that primer or the silver base coat? Hard to tell in the pic, but still looks very nice. Can't wait to see it tomorrow.
