a good buddy asked me to build a buggy for him and his son, he wanted a beach buggy look.
suzuki swift(metro) transaxle, toy diffs, one link front and rear with 12" air shocks. You dont need to spend a heap to have a cool looking buggy no matter what country you live in.

started off with some 2x3" box for rails, set the wheelbase and mounted motor and box

chopped up the metro hood to give it a vw buggy look, still have to extend the hood over the nose a little



added some tube and mounted front shocks
working on rear now and a sliding peddle box and wheel for different drivers
