Borrowed my dads buggy for a while and based the main lower part of the chassis off of his. That saved me a ton of homework and time knowing that his geometery is already spot on.

Front 4 link is done. Suspension cycled without any problems



it's a roller...










Still have some tube work to do. Want to change the two bars on the back on this pic so that they meet up correctly with the new tube work in the rear, add and x brace in the middle of the buggy, finish the cage over the rear seats, and some tubing for the dash/ pedal assembly, and firewall.

Not a newbie!!

That's the most impressive first seven posts I've ever seen from a "newbie!!!" Where do you have axcess to a roller to make the sweeping bends.

Sweet!

Bought a crappy harbor freight tubing roller. Spent as much time fixing the tool as I did using it. Luckily dtwilli here on the forum machined some parts to fix the tool.
