Budget X Chassis Build

Since I only have a 1 car garage, I needed a place to work first. I looked into material cost to design a carport and found a kit that was a little cheaper but came with plans so it would be quick and easy to permit and get assembled.

I got it from metaldeck.com and the first one was damaged in shipping so they sent a second one right out and I had it a few days later. Great Customer service!

It took a couple weekends to build and get inspections for it and all. In progress pic. Roof panels are 21' long and it is 15' wide. About 10' to roof or 9' to bottom of beams. Could have gone higher as I bought the RV kit but it would have looked funny with the house.

Did you finish this buggy? You was on your way to a sweet little buggy.
Sound like a good plan keeping it lighter. Pictures would be nice if you have the time.
Where are people fitting a battery in this chassis and what gauge cable are you running. I know Mike (Air Ride)has his all the way in the back. I am trying to leave the back open for camping gear and cooler.
Could you mount it under the dash on top of the transmission tunnel? I've seen a lot of F toy builds with the battery mounted there.
