    That buggy is rad! Diggin' the black wheels and chrome lug nuts.
    That's interesting those front springs are too soft. I used to put those Empi ones on the back of baja bugs and they always seemed a bit stiff. Maybe they softened the rate over the years. Good job on the build, looks great.

    Thank you. I looked for stiffer springs and different shocks. I haven't been able to locate anything I can afford yet. I'm gonna try putting the rears on the front and if they work, I'll just get another set of those. I believe they are some replacement for a Joyner sand viper( whatever that is) that I found on eBay.

    You're welcome.
    Yeah, good shocks are pricey. Might want to add some nice thick rollcage padding to the section by the driver's/passenger's head area. Speaking from experience it's not pleasant when head meets cage.

    Think I have the shocks figured out. I modified the rear shocks and put them on the front and ordered another set for the rear. On another note, I had broken a ball joint that I had purchased from surplus center so I ordered the ones ubuilditplans.com sells. They came in and one of them had a crack in it. One thing after another.

    There are in line hydraulic p-brakes, but they're not really all that good. I always had bleed down issues. Jamar makes one, if I recall correctly.

    I am painting the buggy with POR15 in black. POR15 is awesome paint but I want to do some parts in red and they never seem to have the red top coat in stock. Anyone know of any other decent paint I can get in red?

Thanks

    Im sure you have progressed beyond the seat mounts, but I think the reason behind not tacking some parts is so you dont have to remove them if they arent positioned correctly.

    That is all
