My friend is currently working on this

Here it is after the bodywork. He had the rims made, I think they are 8" & 10" wide. 3 stage powder coating...chrome or silver base, Lollypop red, and a clear coat. They look like they were coated with Jolly Ranchers.




Motor




First undercoat

Cool, is the body to match the engine? Nice work!

PS. I'll take the blue one with the whitewalls in the background. Smile

quick note...the guy building this buggy also made Jamie Hyneman's matte black Crew Cab. You may have seen it on old episodes of Mythbusters.
