these might be out of order, but you get the build, we modified the tail of this one to be able to access the carb and air filter easier on the trails, filling the old gas hole in the hood was a major ordeal, sand fill repeat...

Nice job Eric. It makes you feel good to get out and drive the thing you've been working so hard on. Good to see another one saved.

Eric, I have a buggy almost like your silver one. Can you tell me what the weight is of the body alone?
By Eric G 2094 Date 2010-05-01 17:12

eric can you tell me what fuel tank you used

By Eric G 2094 Date 2010-06-12 12:41
the tank that was in it was for a side fill and it still had te hole in the middle of the hood, lotsa fillin and sanding, ive recently come across a center fill tank from a buggy i picked up on craigslist for $150 but its about a month to late. pics are reverse order from bottom to top

unfortunatly the chassis the bee sits on was undercoated on the bottom side, when we started driving it, it started breaking in half! the front half of the pan is junk, the frame head is seperating from the napolean hat.

i picked another chassis up and this is what ive been working on. 16 guage diamond plate floor. 1x1 perimeter frame with a removable 1x2 chassis stiffener/body lift. the whole thing is gonna get rhino lined. its almost ready to bring the body over and put it on
