Hello all,

I am about to embark on my first buggy project with an off-road style buggy (CAD pic of the style below). My plan is to try and alter the frame so that it is more like the buggies shown on this forum with fiberglass bodies. My plan is to widen the frame to add an extra seat and then alter the frame such that I can attach a fiberglass body to it. I figure that this is probably a very ambitious project but I welcome any advice or criticism that could help me along. The buggy is to be more of an exhibition piece rather than to be actually used so I don't really need to worry about having a working engine, breaks, etc.

Hello Paul and welcome to the site!

As Dave says there are a few very decent frame builders on the site who may well be able to help. And I know many of us will be very keen to see the progress as you get it done.  ;-)up

Good luck with the project. Nice to see another mad Scot on here, who needs the sun for an open topped car!?
