Is that a Trail-Gear front winch plate? That looks like it took some time to install. Keep building, looks good so far.

I should have been able to figure that out by seeing the sun light in the picture. The sun does not shine much in Oregon!

What kind of intake is that? Also you might want to make your hood and rad support a little stronger. I thought mine were beefy enough until I rolled on a rock & smashed the rad

I see this build going in a bad direction. You need to stop, go back and read a few buildups, and start again.
Remember, the King of Booty Fab title will be up for grabs in April .

OK, I just went through all of the links to pictures you have taken and DEFINATLY see this going bad.
Please re-do the steering!
If you rhino line the interior it should cover up all of the tunnel....hopefully.
Also, your inboarded spring mounts should have been bolted to the frame first, then the inside plate should be welded to the frame, THEN the tops should be welded.
Please don't take this negatively, you will be alot happier with it if you take the time and do it right the first time.
If you have any questions, post them here or PM me. I would be glad to help.

I have to agree with Desertoy. Same thing, don't take it wrong but you need to back up and get a little better plan together. Post up some of your ideas and questions before you build. I'm sure you will get plenty of help here.

The rule of thumb I heard on the angle of the steering shaft is that it should point right at the middle of your throat when you're seated.

That would be the most uncomfortable rig to steer ever, either on the trail or or on a comp course.

speaking from a crazy booty fab background, i think that you know what you want and are getting it done, it just doesnt look that clean. in my case, i just didnt have the experience to know how to fab something like a tunnel, cleanly. when i tried, it was heavy and terrible. i took it out. most of us dont run tunnels. you may be rushing too? dont know? but you'll learn. i am about to refab things on my buggy for the 4th time. each time it gets better now when i have fab ideas, i call someone and talk it out before i go ahead with it. it helps me iron out the bugs. for example, i have to mount my propane tanks, i had an idea, and after talking with mustard dog, i like his idea better, so then i call desertoy and talked to him about it. now we have a plan thats better that what i started with this morning. anyways, keep building, you'll learn as you go. - hobie

I'm sorry, but that picture make me laugh every time I see it. Is there an F-toy build that it's not in?
