    Well it's been almost a month since my last update, so I decided to let you guys know whats going on. Been busy with college, very busy, so I get minimal time at work, which means minimal money. I've been collecting some cash for a while, so I should be purchasing steering soon. Still need to get my tires mounted on the wheels, probably going to take them to a motorsport dealership to get them mounted this weekend. Still need to buy bolts to connect the rear arms to the hubs.... College is a time eater

    Little update: Purchased my next two steps (Not telling what they are ). Ordered them last week so they should be here sometime soon.

    In the mean time I have to clean out my garage, its more full of crap than it was before. My grandfather purchased a storage container and somehow some of it ended up surrounding my buggy...

    Oh yeah, and while I was busy going to school and work, I managed to do some selling and money consolidation and was able to afford something nice...

    She's a quick little sucker

    Yes yes, it is time for an update. It's been a while, school and work have got me really busy, but in three weeks its summer and I'll only be working, making the money for my toys Heres some pics

    Me and my boys have been taking some time for some trips, one worth mentioning being SnoDrift, My two friends have been going since the beginning, and this was my second year, its a riot!


    Buggy wise, I havent got that far. Ill let the pics talk

    This was an exciting day for me when it arrived



    They're... beautiful



    Both in, wrapped back up


    From the front


    Tires mounted on wheels, you're looking at a rear


    Rack is in


    and last but not least, not buggy related, wheels for my Fiesta


    And that's been about it lately, school ends in 3 weeks,First ill be making her a roller with a couple pieces of steel, then buying the material i need for the floor, mounting my seats, weld in the steering wheel, and it'll continue from there. Enjoy the pics and feel free to ask questions

    Also worth noting, I'm looking to build a klx110 pit bike, so some of my buggy money might find its way into that

    K: I just noticed my build is in XK1000, can you move me into the SS1000 please?

    Going to order material to mount the seats soon. What type of aluminum should I use for the seat's brackets? I want to make something similar to Kirkey seat brackets. 6061? 1/8"?
    Is A-36 Hot Rolled angle steel going to be structural enough for the actual mounts? 1/8x1-1/2?
    I dont know anything about material types.
