    finished workin on my garage. now its safe to move my 2 projects n so i did a lil bit better lookin mock up of all my parts again. ill post more pics tonight showing my redesign of the frame and the new work ive started doing on the buggy just this week! any ideas r faults u might c please let me know with some respect please. any assumtion that might need to b cleard up? how about ideas on final paint? neon orange, black n silver r all black? what about black chrome r blue chrome. know of any buisness n the upstate sc area who care about people seriously and can help? im the only one doing this n my area so im getting nothing but hate or pure denial from most. no one seems willing to help nowdays with anything. i was the 2nd person with a lowerd truck around here n that was 10 yrs ago. im hoping to find some well educated n respectable people who r up to date on things n my area and willing to help each other out. i plan on making a living doing similar things n the futre. so any co ops ... ? anything?

    It looks like you are ready to start.
    You have parts that will help. Looks like lots of cool parts.
    Do you have the tools: welder,chopsaw,bandsaw,tub-notcher,drill-press,bench-grinder,vice,sazall,grinder,belt-sander/disk,angel-finder,sqare,tape-mesher,hand-tools.
    You don't need all of those tools but most of them to make it go smoothly.

    Now you said that you have a custom set of plans, this is where you start.
    Go over the plans and figure out where the front a-arms are to be mounted, steering rack and the rear a-arm setup/hubs. Get those parts installed. Your first step is to have a rolling chasse before you mount a motor. This should keep you busy.

    my 1st good weld ever! gotta hobart ez weld mig 140 for christmas from my prettly lil wife. awwww. (thank u gurl : ) havent tried welding n a while due to the last time i tried it blew up like a big purple flamed bomb right n my face. this time as u can c turned out good. i was welding on the engine mt of the rusty ole lil black yard kart frame u can c n one of the above pics. my wire feed was set on 2 n amps/heat set on 3. i have a 22x24 garage n that one lil weld smoked up the place so i installed a 5hp electric fan i call "hugo" after r old hurricane. anyways with my welder i was using the .35 flux core n tip it came with to do the weld n this pic. it was brown so i whacked that sucker with a hammer and one lil tink later it was all nice n shiny like u c here : ) dont worry im still praticing n plan on switching to gas n solid .30 wire later.

    A chop saw is for basic cuts it isn't that important. A hac-saw will work. A pipe bender is not what you want you need a tube bender.

    sorry had to finish up my reply like this as my messege box refused to show up half way through the reply to "gotted". thanks for ur info. i just read ur messege after learning exactly what u stated. i will most def start on the front a arms n mounts now that i just relized what i was doing was trying to mt the engine 1st when i should have been setting up the front a arms 1st. still not sure on my rack yet but im thinkin i should go with the out board type rack with clevis mnts 15" eye to eye. i think its like $173 but really need to find cheaper ( price not quality )parts either used r build one my self just no one n a 50mile radius to help. th junk yards around here arent very helpfull. they just type n a computer n dont actually know that much. so i seem to b stuck doing all things online now wich gave me the idea we need a "real mans" store just for metal fab n custom work n my area very badly and i might just b half way decent enough to do so sometime next yr. as far as a tube notcher do u think a regular round metal bit would work n a lil drill press with the tube clamped down?
