Hey guys I am new to the site and thought i would post some pics of my Protodie ss1000(1300?) build. I got the plans from Jody at protodie i believe sometime back in march and have made some pretty good progress i feel. It is almost comical how well all the notching and bending come out with the drawings. Well anyway, i am using 1.5" .095 DOM for the chassis and going to be tig welding it all out.

Welcome Croush.

Buggy looks good, small, but good.

Where are you located?

hey Croush, welcome to MBN !

looks like you got a real nice shop there to build in

making great progress on your build

the pics you uploaded are kinda small.
you can upload larger ones, or if you have the pics somewhere else online like facebook, flickr, or some other host , you can hyper link them and they will be much bigger

click the "insert image " and then past a hyper link to a pic


here is one I linked from facebook
