I didn't see a line for the 3/16 plate on the parts list and was wondering how much was needed?

Parts list for what dude?? What plans do you have? What are you building? Does it mention in the plans whether it's easier to have a laser cutting or water jet company do the work if you have dxf. files. If you are cutting the plate yourself mock up the parts on a large cardboard sheet and use those as a template to see what size plate sheet you need.

On this sit Info is the key to getting results. Let the good gents here know what you are up too and what you want from your buggy and they will be more than willing the help. ( Oh and if you got pics and video, that always goes down well.)

Badlands always give the dxf file with the plans i think. It would be much easier to have them professionally cut. Worth every penny. Ask different shops for quotations. :D
