    Not related to my build but Pismo was a blast, weather was perfect, and also spotted a barracuda for the first time and really motivated me to get my build done so I can go rip the dunes!

    About those shock Mounts.
    Glock put alot of time in his build to reinforce some of the weak points on Megalodon shock mounts.

    Some cross bracing should do fine.

    Thanks I haven't really been working on the buggy too much lately, Im mainly just collecting parts at the moment. If you want pics I found some russian guys build you can check out, pretty awesome to see someone else build the same thing you are!

    Nice build! I'm also building a megalodon and have put about 300(ish) hours into it. I might be pretty slow - this is my first build ever. I've progressed to the stage where you marry the top rollcage to the bottom frame via the front and rear uprights. I tack welded it and then put a seat in it and sat in it to make the vvvrrroooommmm vvvrrroooommmm noises like you but my head hit the top of the rollcage! I ended up making some other noises!


    I checked and checked again the measurements and dimensions and I did everything to spec - I'm solving the problem by refabricating the front and rear uprights but 6'' longer. I'll have to make some other modifications to compensate for the longer uprights.

    I see your pic of you sitting in the buggy but obviously not hitting your head. In fact, looks like you have room to spare. Just curious whether you made any modifications from the plans, or how tall you are that you can fit. At 6'2'', I'm taller than most people, but I would have expected the plans to accommodate someone of my height.

    Keep up the good work!
