    Well three years of thinking and dreaming on Buggy #2 got the plans from the Man in Red not much done but I did manage to to get the a arm jig laser cut and made the blocks . Still figuring out the mill drill so process is kinda slow . Was waiting for the steel to come in some came today and the rest next week . Front plate kit is on route from Rick and should have it this week . Here's a few pics kinda dark but I'll take some when lighting is a little better. Attachment 25207Attachment 25208

    I'll post up a pic of the idle end of the harvester that I just finished up Attachment 25209 Not buggy related but equipment repairs before buggy .More build pics and such in the future

    Great to see. I just got my frame together on my AR51. It looks like your build is going to provide a lot more detail on home made jigs and fabricating a lot of the parts I sourced from Rick. I hope to do the same on my buggy #2.

    Ah cool Sodman! Can't wait to see how this one turns out. I've been buying plans and parts from Rick slowly over the last year or so now for an AR51. I'm very anxious to get started on my build but I still need to finish the wife's Trax2!

    Was able to get some lathe time to do my bungs and links and spacers for the front a arms . Just need to notch and put some flat mating surfaces on some of the pieces and I'll be ready to start putting the arm together well after I build some kind of holder so I can notch on the lathe . I got idea as to what I'll build but if anyone has some pics of their's post some up . Here's pics of progress so farAttachment 25326
