Members Buggies / lite restoration!
« Last Post by coverworks08 on Today at 05:33:00 AM »
hello ,all  :), i have just started my lite restoration of my buggy....i cant seem to upload any  >:( pics any help!?
I have made the group booking under buggy club and Annabel has the list. She has emailed me the following and how to pay your deposit. You can email her direct (she doesn't respond straight away as she has another job out of season) or ring her if you need to change your booking i.e add a gazebo/ awning or I have given her the wrong details.

Dear Vanessa,

Many thanks for sending through further details for your group booking.

Taking the pitches in order, rates per night are as follows (along with assumptions I have made where the information is missing);

Coleman - £21
D Coleman - £18 (non EHU)
Taylor - £21 (6amp EHU rather than 10amp)
Kirby - £18 (non EHU)
Smith - £21
Watts - £18 (assume you are referring to this as a caravan - please advise) (non EHU)
Craddock - £21
Saville - £23 (assumes only 1 car)
Sandy - £18
Gadsby - £21
Cooper - £21
Ward - £23 for a 10amp pitch and 2 people.  Please advise on the age of the children and this will need to be added to this rate.

Once you have managed to confirm the final details, if you would like to go ahead and book we require a non refundable deposit of the first night which can be paid as follows;
i) cheque to A Tungate (not accepted if arrival is within 14 days of booking),
ii) bank transfer (a/c no. 16740660, sort code. 30-90-25, a/c name. A Tungate),
iii) debit card  - we can email through a link for you to pay securely through our card provider Worldpay (the email will show as from Worldpay and will appear in your inbox or possibly junk folder).   

The balance for the stay on all bookings (excl. group bookings of 4+ pitches) is due on arrival.  All payments made whilst on site are required by cash ONLY since we do not have a card facility.

Please be advised that as per our standard terms any amendments to bookings must be advised no later than 48 hours prior to arrival or you will be charged for the balance as booked.  Bookings over bank holiday weekends are subject to a 3 night stay.

Group bookings of 4 or more units are required to make a non refundable payment of the balance 2 weeks prior to arrival for us to continue to hold the pitches for their arrival.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind Regards,

Continuing the journey of the African buggy build
Prior to finalising the chassis frame work i purchased a Doon shell. This enable the frame work to be created to best suit the individual shell

Reinforcing the Chassis
At the the front some sheet metal was added to support the foot pedals. The buggy I had for the Mongol Rally split at this point so reinforcing this area was essential

At the rear of the floor plan the chassis was further reinforced with a triangulated section. This was further reinforced with the addition of some plate steel at the rear.

The final result minus the floor plan came out like this

The Floor Plan
The floor plan for the buggy was made from a single sheet of aluminium. It was cut to fit the chassis and then bolted on. Currently it has been left unpainted until the roll cage has been fabricated and fitted. The plan will be to use Raptor paint on it prior to the final fit out.

Fitting the Front Beam
The warrior front beam that I purchased didn't come with the beetle front mounts so a donor beam was sourced. The brackets were then removed and welded in place on the new beam.

Fitting the beam with the Doon Shell
Another problem to solve was that the new front beam has 8 inch shock towers. This meant that they would be too tall for the Doon Shell. So holes had to be cut in the shell to accommodate the the taller towers.

Now that the Chassis work and floor plan are in I'll be doing an initial fitting the Front and rear suspension. This will allow me to move it around easier and get it up to Lee at Volksmagic for the roll cage and bodywork.

The chassis work has been carried out by Arthur at the M.A.D Workshop in Bristol.
