I have been meaning to do a build thread on my buggy since I joined the forum so here goes....

I bought the car in the summer of 2016 from a guy in Norfolk, (sorry I can't remember your name I think Chris? )
 
He in turn bought it off another bloke who built the car I believe in around 2009/2010. I can't take any credit for it what so ever apart from being smart enough to buy and use it!  :D

Any how the guy I got it off (lets call him Chris) gave me a CD full of pictures from the build so here they are....

Thanks you dude, tho like I said I can't take any credit for the car, bought not built  ;D

The only thing Iv done to the car is added a hard top roof, and accidentally broke the stereo  >:(   ;D

PS how do I edit my post? Just realised there's a lot of spelling mistakes in the first one.

Cheers John

Nice buggy and tweaked your spelling but nobody would have bothered.

Or just wait for an over-pedantic moderator to proof read it... ::)

Sorry ;D

Nice buggy, but I would check weather that "Red" steering coupling ring has been changed for a reinforced rubber one!! These red ones are made of urethane and go brittle and snap with no warning, there are also some black ones about as well.

Got to keep members happy Dave a few spelling mistakes is not a problem the brain just reads it correctly anyway, at least it was not text spk and unfathomable.

Hey, that's my old steering wheel, I'd know it anywhere! I changed the horn push for the Grant GT one before I sold it. ;-)up
