    I have converted the frame plans from metric to inches three places to the right of the decimal example 1220 = 48.031 Question round up or down nearest inch feed back pleas. Also the pros and cons of the side wings on or off the buggy see pics both ways. Thanks for all the help Ed.

    I'm assuming your asking about tube lengths @ 48". Use the "common sense" rule....Can you hold a 32nd (.031)on all your cuts? Is .010 really going to matter for the position of a tube? Throw an Indicator on it and watch it move when you tack it.....You can save the accuracy for the machined parts. Just my $.02

    I agree with Vidio1. You want is as close as possible, but remember you are building a buggy not the space shuttle. bazz has a good idea.
