Nice buggy Doctor!!!!

Thats is a very nice looking buggy. Well done. What are the #'s? whats the height to the top of the cage at ride height? how wide is that buggy? outside of tire to tire? whats the wheelbase?

Its very nice. Cant wait to see it out on the trails.

I don't know what the fuss is about. Everyone knows blowers are so last week. Cold fusion powered rigs are the latest craze, gees.

You probably would be supprised how it all takes shape. We didn't use an english wheel at all on this one, but we did use a bead roller a lot on the dash. No mallet and bag and I didn't anneal the aluminum either.

Its very nice. Cant wait to see it out on the trails.
Top of the cage height is 76"

chassis width 50"

over all width is 92"

belly pan is 25"

wheel base is 122"

weight I'm not sure but when it hits the scales I will let you know.




And thanks for all of the compliments on this rig guys.It has been around the shop for a very long time in the making but I'm glad it is close to hitting the trails soon.

I cant wait to hear this thing run!
