Wish this thing didn't have a body.  Buggies are way easier to weld!

Had to drop the cage to weld the top:
 

kinda looks like a spider:

i don't think he built those seats. when i was working on trophy trucks towards the end of high school/summer thats how they figured out placement of the seats. They bought the frames, got them all mounted and figured out. Then sent them off to get upholstered. that way they could work through them and didn't have to worry about wrecking them.


also kenny, this looks rad. i'm watching closely because this is what I'm gonna do with my truck this summer.

hanging glass is such a PITA!!!  They don't come with any hardware whatsoever.  Turned out pretty good, though.

Yes...get it out so I can drive it and get your buggy out of my garage.  Grin

Actually, I could not have asked for a better build.  I am extremely impressed with Kenny's skills, and I am hoping to get him some recognition in a magazine shoot.  I have a few friends in the industry, and they are trying to make it happen.  Who know...hopefully Kenny will have to hire someone soon.  Grin
