    Yes, i'll try and update this more often!

    I'll let the pictures do the talking but, the front end is basically complete.
    Ive now run out of tube but im hoping to get the rear end finished next week.

    I'm going to "try" and make this thing road legal so im sourcing my own hubs/uprights and steering column rather than making them.

    It will also have disk brakes on each wheel and cv joints instead of U joints.







    I think I was a bit impatient buying the wheels!

    It's looking really good. That's the first ST4 frame I've seen and I like it. Great fab work too, it's nice having the space and equipment to build it. Good luck finding uprights that work for you, that can sometimes be the hardest part about building a buggy, finding off-the-shelf parts for a build.

    Like others have said good to see a ST4 build and very nice job so far. Keep the pictures coming, you know they say they are worth a thousand word. Are you just using a hand held plasma torch with you plasma table. That looks interesting. is all the plate work cut with this system. It sure looks like it does a sweet job.

    The plasma table would do it but it doesnt like holes very much as it puts a noticable taper on the edge, Ive had the front and rear assemblies laser cut as theres less prep work, also most of it interlocks so size is important.

    There's not much difference between the hand torch and a machine torch in performance, The machine torch is just easier to hold and obviously looks neater...
