    Welcome Turner.

    Beautiful job on the buggy and CAD work!

    Slideshow is very nice also.

    Looks very similar to a pilot frame?

    Whats your background? Obviously a very talented fabricator and welder!

    Welcome to MBN!

    Beautiful work.

    Pretty much agree with everything that Bull said/asked.

    I have pedal envy! (sort of...) Those are killer.

    Thanks Bullnerd,
    Yeah the idea was inspired by the Pilot. Unfortunately I don't think we ever got any Pilots here in NZ. The wheelbase is 100mm (4") longer than a Pilot, mainly to fit the Pedals in.
    I used to do a bit of fab work for a job but have been doing Mechanical Design Engineering for the last 15 years.The Fabrication is now a hobby.
