Buggy is coming on nicely now and have made a start on wiring with all LED lights,  bonnet has been on and off a few times trial fitting for clearances and why is it so daunting drilling holes in sparkly fibreglass.  :o

Body is now bolted down onto home made neoprene foam gasket ontop of nylon shaped strips sikaflexed to the pan. The reason for not wanting to pull the body down is the 30x30x3 box section welded into the channel underneath, absolutely no flex in the pans.

So got to the point where I'm bolting the body to chassis and I noticed a while ago that the body really doesn't touch the chassis except at the very front and the rear, there is a good 8-10mm gap, I think this is probably due to the fact that the body was made in 2014 and never got put on the chassis properly until this year. So I have power planed some nylon strip into shape then I can tighten body down nice and tight. Anyone else had this issue with a Manx.

I do like your car so much it's cool on another level but I don't know why  8)

Long term storage concerns engine wise would be which ever valve springs are fully compressed they can be liable to breaking when compressed for long periods :-\

Vw pedals look so bland so I thought I would start sprucing them up a bit. 8)

Seat belt reels have come out of a smart car same as the seats they are inclined to correspond with the hoop, tried them inclined and they pull out okay and retract they also lock when snatched. Mounted them to bracket welded into the floor as I felt this would be stronger, apart from the roll hoop mounting they mount the same as in a smart car. I also intend to attach the upper roll hoop mount into the body shell back down to the shock mount externally so as it's hidden but still very strong

As David says the first motion shaft sits in spigot bearing in flywheel nut so when it's all bolted up there will be no play  ;-)up

Given some thought to this, and actually, Bosch K jetronic, utilising some motorcycle throttle bodies could be a nice simple system.

As it has 4 carb ports, a metering head from a 4 cyl such as golf GTI mk1 would work. fashion the K jet injectors into the 4 throttle bodies.  pretty easy

Plan on Suzuki GSXR 600 throttle bodies for our buggy with standalone management,injectors are built into the body the early ones split into four separate throttle bodies you can pick them up cheap on eBay they have 36mm
Chokes in them
