    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Today I moved the buggy from my friend's shop in my small warehouse. And also put the front suspension together. Now i need to find out how i am going to mount the shocks.

    I have used metal pipe not tubing so the frame did not cost a lot. But i haven't yet paid for the metal. I believe around 150 euros for the metal and i paid 30 euros for bending

    I have finally finished the front shock mounts. I could not get 90 degrees at full bump. I believe it's about 70 degrees. I would need to do a lot of modification to get 90. Now i need to find hubs, brake discs and calipers for the front and of-course wheels

    Why did you remove that one bar? It seems on this photo that the future shock will have enough room without removing that bar. Can't you place them both?

    No room at all. It would definitely hit at full bump. But in this setup, the shock may hit the upper a-arm. If this happens i will use a limit strap to prevent this and also prevent the steering heim from bottoming
