You will overcome the set back, my snoopy2 buggy got brought collected and rebuilt with my right leg in plaster from thigh to toe although I did have two good hands.

Just keep it clean you do not want an infection.

Hi all, its been just over two months sinse my last post and with the deep cut to my finger all sorted, I have been on the case.
The electrics are all in, lights fitted and all working, to my suprise  ;-)up
Found some great little indicator lights from a bike shop



and my fuse box and relays all fitted on a off cut and mounted under the bonnet, but still need to tidy up the loom now its all fitted together



I have hunted around for a roll cage but could not find anything that took my fancy and to get one made, would be a silly price. So I bought myself a cheapo nasty pipe bender for fifty quid, loads of sand and some pipe and had a go myself

Yep, the whole lot has cost me about 200 and still got tube left for the front hoop.
so far I have spent 5860 with seats and seat belts to buy. I set my budget to 6000 so think I am going to go a little over.

Collected my seats this weekend from DPD, didnt look good as the one end of the box was bashed in and cut open. Got the box home and opened it and all was well, thanks to the excellent packaging inside.
The seats only took a week to arrive, all the way from Polland, so not bad service.


Got the seats and belts from GSM Performance who kept me informed every step of the way
Great service

not been on for sometime, as my lad loves my bug that much we are building him one.
Have managed to knock up a soft top by its a little rough. Thick I am going to have another go, at a second hood (not happy with the first one)
