As suggested by Michelle, I'm creating this sticky topic as an index to buggy builds on the web.  If you've documented a build or have a favorite that should be here, just post a link to it!  Include a picture if possible. 

One day this may morph into a whole section of the site. If it does, I'll use this as a source to start building the section.

I'd like to keep this to just links which a quick description of buggy builds.  Any discussion I'll try to move off to its own topic.

Note: here's another great board for buggy builds from the Texas Manx Club.  Thanks, Michelle, for pointing it out to me.

The "Bluggy Buiild" - This is a photo history of Deb's BCBee build from stock engine and industrial blue paint to a MegaSquirt EFI 1915, rewiring and new gelcoat.

The bluggy before I blew up my wife's motor:

The bluggy after a lot of work! 

Jerry's album including some nice custom touches he added (stainless tail lamps with extra bulbs, keys that hang "up", and billet turn signal levers.

"Before pictures" of the Bluggy as we disassembled it for the new gel coat. Note the great wiring job that Jerry did.  We wanted to make sure everything was reassembled correctly so we have a lot of wiring pictures here.

New gel coat - this was done by a local shop in Aurora that makes industrial tanks.  Its "orange-peel-ish" but this buggy is for "go" not for "show" and we needed the body beefed up for sand use.

Here's my documented build. It needs updating, but figured I would throw it in here anyway:

If you like carbon fiber and brushed aluminum, then take a look at what I did with the interior of my buggy last winter.
