    Buggy's looking good mate the seat however it looks a little how ya going, not trying to be a smart arse. I've got one I cut out on my CNC table I was gonna put it on ebay but you can have it for a reasonable price if you like. You can email me at reidydl01@gmail.com my name is Dave. It's 3mm aluminum I can send you a pic if you like or I can try and post one here? Let me know if you are interested. Ah I'm in the Blue Mts so not too far from you.

    I finally got most of my round tube last week. I was having trouble getting the DOM in the specced sizes and wall thicknesses, so I've gone with chromoly tube. Apparently it's x% stronger than DOM so I can use x% smaller wall tubing...except for the bits that I need to fit bungs into so I bought thicker wall and machined them down. Anywho, I also got a piece of 400mm x 700mm x 6mm plate for the arm jig and I've started on my front arms-

    While I'm at it, I'll introduce you to my quality control expert-



    She doesn't say much, but she has a way of letting me know if something needs doing again.

    The seat looks like the one from Bob aka Rorty site. Once you pad that up it will look OK.
    If you dont mind where did you order the bender from and did it come with the stand. Did you get it in Oz or from USA?
    What did it set you back with shipping?
    Ride it like you Stole IT!!!

    Yeah it's the rorty seat- about 50mm wider than the plans. I'm probably going to put a poly seat it it anyway.

    The bender and dies were from Queensland off Ebay. Do a search for "tube die" and you'll find a user called laserkit. He imports the Pro tools bender. No stand, but came with the mounting plates, so I just had to buy a 75x75 square and weld them together.

    I've got a couple of mates with properties out past Bathurst and down Goulburn way for messing around. As for racing, I've been checking what the guys on the Edge forums are doing with the sorra guys at Colo

    Yeah she's a blue staffie, just over 2 so still a puppy really, and a real sook even though those jaws demolish bones in no time.

    There has been a couple of blokes from Bathurst come down and race a couple of our TORC rounds,had a very nice cuda,i think they also ran with the bigger buggies in NSW. That area would be awsome for a bug.They used to have a round of the four stroke nationals there and at Picton ,I used to love the racing up that way,beautifull area .

    I know what you mean about jaw power .Frank,my friends dog carries a bowling ball in his mouth,somehow gets his teeth in the finger holes and picks it up ,but he cant now ,he has rounded the hole edges and cant grip it so he just pushes it around now.
