    Welcome Cowboy,

    first tip,,,,measure twice cut once
    2nd tip , wear saftey glasses when grinding or machining

    many of the build pics were lost in my build threads when the site was updated a few years back

    Beruba did a nice job with pics and documenting his build of the SS1000

    https://www.minibuggy.net/forum/ss100...ss-1000-a.html


    read thru some of the SS1000 build threads and they may answer questions you may have?

    when you start your build , post a lot of pics and any current questions you may have at that stage of your build and the answers will flow.

    this is a super helpful forum

    Welcome to MBN.

    Tack everything then once done go back and weld. Just a spot or two, not full welding until you’re almost done.

    To Minibuggy.net, Please start a thread & post lots of pictures. I will follow your build answer any question you have and give you advise along the way. Look at my build thread I think it is well detailed. It would be good to see some action on this site its been quiet lately. What are you going to use for power plant?
