Since the PO Rob cut the back off before we got it, it wasn't hard to make a few cuts ourselves.
The windshield frame is now 11 inches tall. The hardtop roof has been chopped 5 or 6 inches at the back.
What a difference.
Side pods glassed in.
Hot rod black was sprayed with no major attention to prep. Lol.
Still need to get the rear stance right, but she's looking low, mean, and homegrown.
Tilt column in mail.
Zip shifter installed...
Dietz 510 lights...
Diamond stitch interior in the works.
Vintage Stewart Warner oil temp gauge...
Glass needle speedo...
Moon pedal. Vintage all the way.
Just wait til the side-pipes get fabbed up!

Sidepipes are fabbed up. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea.  But IMHO it's bad ass in person.
The hardtop has a vinyl covering going on it...
Pushing hard to be done for buggies on the beach.
Windshield next, and diamond stitch interior getting sewn.
An old Skool glass needle speedo will wrap this buggy up.
And yes, there ar baffles and insulation so your ass won't get hot...

Pin-stripes set the lines off nicely.
Buggies on the beach 1 rocked!
