    This chassis is the same as the last 2 seat Protolite SS1000 so probably not too much new info
    Here is a link to the last build thread

    http://www.minibuggy.net/forum/proje...eat-build.html

    This one will be more of a final assembly log

    I just picked up parts from powder coat last Friday

    Roll cage is Extreme Chrome

    Body panels are Candy red. This is extreme chrome with transparent red over top to give it depth

    Suspension and engine cradle are gloss black.

    I hope to have this together in the next 2 weeks,,,,we will see

    Those are called cleco pins.

    They are awesome.
    It is a spring loaded pin that holds temporarily thru your rivet holes.
    There is a special pliers that releases the spring tension to put them in & out,,,holding the panels on while you work.

    Huge time saver when doing body panels

    Sweet colors! That red really stands out against the chrome.

    Wow that is super clean looking.. that extreme chrome looks good against the red and that red is nice.
    Very clean and great color choice. I like it a lot.
    Looking forward to seeing this one done and completed.
    As always great job.

    Thanks guys,
    I am excited for this one.
    There will be pearl white stripes, one on the raised center hood and then 2 over the roof.
    Similar to the last black & grey car.

    The red powder coated dash is aluminum, and I will CNC engraving this so all the design & lettering comes thru silver /aluminum.

    Jodi, I could send you some clear coat for the dash that MEK couldn't touch, to keep it looking good for a long time.. Do you have a air brush??
    Another nice car!!
