Anybody got any good web links on this? I'd like to use some existing body panels to top off the chassis once the tube's all stuck together. Could definitely use some tips and tricks.

John just weld some tabs on the chassis and bolt some lexan or plastic pannals that you cut to desired shape and be done. You could even rivet them. I can find out where to get large amounts of the white plastic they use for Trans Am series cars and then you just cut to fit.

Yeah, that's easy enough Nick, but I'm talking about something different.
I'm planning on using a CJ cowl/ firewall instead of fabbing one (suck at bodywork) and don't know whether to set it in place and run tubes through, or build the chassis, cut up the cowl and attach the pieces around the tubing, or... :confused:

Now I get ya. I would just take some mesurements and build the chassis and build a new cowl that looked like a jeep cowl without the raised part that the window bolts to. Take a close look at Paules rig and you will see what I am talking about, besides you could narrow it better that way.

Just my .02

New MINI.

I actually think a fiberglass new MINI body would fit a buggy pretty well.

Just giving Slagburn a hard time:D , he and I share a workshop

Has anyone tried that stuff for snap on covers for there tube doors, to keep out rain and or wind.

How loud do you think the 1/8in would rattle at fater speeds.

That looks like it would work good..
