    Greetings and salutations!

    I am finally going to start my thread showing the work I have done on my SII. I hope to be able to post some progress pictures soon. I have been working on parts of my buggy for a while now and have finally decided to start this post. I am hoping it will help keep me motivated during the upcoming winter months. I have read many of the threads on this forum and they have really had my head swimming with all the possibilities of things I would like to do to my buggy. All I can say is that this forum has some very creative and smart people building buggies. I will post more as soon as I down load my build Picts from my phone to my computer.

    Thanks
    Inailit

    Since this is my first buggy build, my plan is to stay fairly close to the original drawings. I am planning on having a small cargo area over the engine so that I can carry some basic camp stuff, a cooler, tools or whatever I think I may need.

    Does anyone know how to post pictures? I keep trying to insert a picture only to have it ask for a URL. I have also tried to download the picture from my computer and it tells me that the download failed. Any help would be appreciated.

    I do the Photobucket and IPhone deal. Works fine for me.

    You need to use an image hosting site like photobucket, it holds the pics for you, then when you post on here you link to the pic. Photobucket makes it really easy to copy and paste the links into the post. If you put the photobucket app on your phone its easy to transfer the pics to your account.

    Here is my first attempt at inserting a picture. This picture was taken a while ago. since this was taken i have Fabricated quite a few of the small steel suspension members. I have also been collecting a lot of the hardware for the axles, spindles, and etc.

    Thanks Duane and Jerm for the advice on posting pictures.

    Take 2.
    Sorry for the blurry picture. My camera was broken when this photo was taken. I will post better pictures in the next couple days.

    I finally had a few minutes to figure out the photo bucket stuff and down load some pictures. see below. Since this is my first build and I don't have a big budget, i have been looking for a Horizontal shaft Brigs, Honda or etc. I have found a few in the local adds, but they all look as though they have been beat nearly to death already. I did a search online and found a 15 hp horizontal shaft "Honda knock-off" from Home Depot that comes with electric start and an 18 amp alternator for about $400. I am not sure of the quality, but the reviews are positive. I would love to find a decent running motorcycle motor to put into my cart, but have not been able to find anything within my budget that still runs. Also, I would love to have a reverse gear, but after searching forever, I think I will have to go the old fashioned method and get out and push.

    I have spent the last couple fab sessions working on the suspension parts so please see below for pictures.











    Just as a side note: yes, I am building two SII Buggy's. Once my wife saw the progress, she said she would not be a passenger, so the only logical solution was to build one for her.
