Awsome, Thumbs up to you, You could have sold these build instructions to us,(I personally would have been more than happy to buy them),  instead you chose to offer them up free of charge. Thank You!!!

You can't put a price on your fun, if you do, it stops being fun...

Let me know if they work for you. My server provider played ring around the rose with my site on there servers and it has been nothing less then a fiasco.
By Paul Moran (DBA Architect) Date 2008-06-20 19:10
The link worked when I tried it last night.  Good luck with your hosting.  Paul...

Would you happen to have anything on replacing floor pans on an already shortened frame?
By Kustoms Date 2008-11-16 03:22
Check my site. I have some photos on it. I will put something together for you.
By Dave F 1182 Date 2008-11-16 21:16

Could you please tell me where I could find the dimensions of a bettle chassis and after the 14 1/4 inchs are cut off what the correct dimensions for a buggy chassis?

By Kustoms Date 2008-11-16 22:06
Dave I will work on it. My books are at the shop.
By Kustoms Date 2008-11-17 17:26 Edited 2008-11-19 14:40
Wiring is on hold. I need to check out some legal stuff.
By Kustoms Date 2008-12-15 18:36

Hi I'm new to the dune buggy world and I just bought a Spatz body.  I want to get started on the project but I'm not sure what I should buy to get started.  Can I buy just a regular volkswagon or does it have to be a super beetle?  Any advice on the whole project would be much appreciated!  Thanks

By Jake S Date 2009-06-24 19:01
the link for shortining a VW chassi doesn't seem to work for me any other way to get to it or can you reset the link?
By Kustoms Date 2009-06-24 19:05
Hi jake, We are reworking my site. It will be down for a little bit. I will try to post them else where.
By Allison Daytona Ken Date 2009-09-26 20:03
hi Jake have you tryed the myers manx site, it seems like to me they had a forum on how to shorten a chassis.
By Eric F 2056 Date 2010-02-25 17:11

It seems they will be availble again Thanks to Tom at Tijuana Kustoms
By Jay H (X-20) (ManxVair CC) Date 2011-01-06 04:19
Hey Hank,
Thanks for the effort, but if you look closely at the dates, that thread began in 2003 probably with good intentions, but here we are in 2011, and while Tom did post them here for a while, they are surely gone now... for whatever reasons he wanted to remove them. So, in essence... Thanks to Tom at Tijuana Kustoms, they are no longer offered. Ironic! :-)

In any event, moving forward in 2011, I would like to see them here again. They were so useful, people liked to reference them, they would always be offered free here here, and it just makes sense to continue with a good thing.

It's been over a year and a half since Tom deleted them. I did just check his site, and do not see them linked there, so I think it is time to do something about it.

By Hank M 950 Date 2011-01-06 08:28
Actually the last post was made yesterday a 2:58 . In the spirit of helping out I am searching for the Tuff Tub build instructions I had and will e mail them the moment I find them. DBA has helped me in my build with both technical advice and encouragement, it's the least I can do

By Jay H (X-20) (ManxVair CC) Date 2011-01-06 16:21
Hank, I stand corrected. I was looking at the join date not the post date. Thanks for setting the record straight.

I am pleased that Tom will once again have the build instructions up for everyone to enjoy. I still plan to collect build instructions so the buggy community can have a backup... in case Tom's computer crashes again. :-) I appreciate you helping in that endevor Hank.

Hi Ken,
I saw two of your daytona's on a web site. The guy  had one for sale ( just a body) I see that you have two of them.
Here's my question to you.How much does the chas have to be shorten on a 62  bug frame for the daytona to fit?
And is there a site or a book that I can purchase to build a daytona? I know that a manx has to be cut 14 1/2" in a V cut. How about the daytona....
