 Hi
Just a quick hello, recently bought a LWB buggy believe it's a FF Rat. Not on the road yet but hopefully soon, when running correctly then can start making everything else look better. Might take a few years :).

Thanks to one & all for the warm welcome.
My technical knowledge is limited (basic), so I will prob ask loads of questions. ( I apologise in advance).
It's a 1300cc beetle engine, so not fast but good enough for me, I sold my motorbike to buy it.
I don't know much about buggys except I have always wanted one so bought it, but I would like to learn. I have not found any others in my area or any clubs, but once I am all road legal I will defo like to come to gatherings.
Will post a question soon once I have a pic of the exhaust.
Cheers
Deb
