Fantastic work!

Some real nice touches throughout - just flows so well - the pin-striping really sets it off  ;-)up

Keep the photos coming!

Very very nice indeed!!!!!!

Darn I say, this could be rivalling Ludicruz's build. But what I love about this one is the different take on the components and paint. Really given us all something different to think about.

I can't decide what I like the mostů I see one part, the way its been finished and then I see another part and think, on thats cool, I like thatů.Too!


Very smart indeed.  :) :) :)

OH MAN! this could easily turn out to be in my top ten buggies, absolutely loving the hotrod influence,
some stunning ideas, looks brilliant so far, cant wait to see it finished, love those pedals, and the pin striping looks brilliant. the mesh finish looks superb, great idea,
con you tell I like it  ;D ;-)up

this buggy was built by two guys who normally do hotrods, I cant remember which mag or edition, actionVW or the other. they had some great ideas.
I have just posted the links rather than the photos so not to spoil your build thread.

I might be wrong (I normally am!) but I think Manxrod also built that orange one Steve! I'm sure he will be along in a minute to tell us!
