Wouldn`t it be easier in the long run to change the wheels to match the PCD rather than drilling and studding discs?

Yes" but in the same way If I had used a stock rolling pan it would now be on the road" :D and it would still look the same as any other buggy""  I do have a slip from years ago for wheels outside of the body line :D,, and to get 10" and 7" slots in the body line is hard"" I can fit 5or6" slots on the front but I like to have tyres and front brakes that work not slide or lock up,,, As I'm going low the wheels have got to sit in the body line any way,,, I'm in no rush and I get more out of building them and I do driving or going to shows,,I had an mk1 as a daily drive for years, I had years of going to events and being lift to put up club gazebos etc why the show queens prop the bar up and talking boll...s,,

I got lucky and it saves me work :D  I got a set of 10x15 and 13x5.5 ;-)up Now I can get it low with no need for adapters but still need to drill the discs/drums

I have not been working on the buggy as life has been getting in the way and I'm shot to bits :P  But now I'm back to it I got a price for alloy sheet for the seat and it was cheaper to use checker plate :-\ So steel it was going to be? to one day I got asked If I needed a 205l drum "No!





I still got work to do to it nut cost in steel sheet and rod was £10 :D

Really neat.

Certainly deserves a drum roll.

Is there really nothing that canít be re purposed to help create a buggy ?

Like all ways? the tools you need are at the workshop or like me at my parents home like a 5ft 1/2 ton folder and as I need to fold up some bits for the buggy it was a case of make ,buy or a 20mile trip,, So I made a small folder cost was just time and £30 in old bit that I had,,
