Toy looks nice and the buggy looks like it should be fun.

Who was the previous owner of the buggy?

What kind of power plant? Do you know what you are going to run in it?

the buggy is from washington. don't know much about it i traded a custom front housing for it. it is based on toyota running gear, so that will be what i will put in it. he had a 22re and 5 speed and i am gonna go with propane on this also and thinking about an automatic. probably just put 37's on it. i would like to take the running gear out of the yota and put one tons under it then put that gear under the buggy. we'll see

odie brought me my chassis today. got the chassis at my house now. welded some wheels to the bottom of the chassis to be able to move it around. started grinding and rewelding stuff. overall not to bad on the welds, but alot of them are undercut and focus one one side more than on both. plus all the tubes are open on the end so i pulled out the plasma and cut some plugs and welded them in then ground them smooth. i also replaced the front gusset with a trucker girl. i am still trying to visualize how the drivetrain goes in. hopefully it become more apparent once i get some to put in it. i also framed up a pretty cool poster that i got
what color should i paint it?

i worked on the buggy this weekend. i decided that the back end was poorly designed and needed to be reworked. so i cut the back off and stretched it. i moved the lower bar out 7" and redid the downtubes. this gives me an extra 14" in the back.

those two pieces of flat stock on the original design are where the radiator mounted. with that there and a fuel cell/propane tank in front of that there would be no room for anything else. now i should be able to fit a small cooler in the back for my lunch and beverages. that or maybe a couple ammo cans for some tools. i am going to redo the way the engine sits in also and redo the lower cradle. they designed the engine to sit in crooked from the passenger side aimed at the drivers side. and it was set up to sit ontop of the cradle. well that makes it so you sit ontop of the drivetrain. my way will still sit ontop of the drivetrain but it will be lower and less interferance with the shifters
