  1. So after 6 months after my initial post about my beach buggy that i picked up, things slowed right down, and haven't done a whole lot, but i thought i'd start a new thread regardless! Back in December, i picked up a beach buggy, where the only items that were salvageable were the interior, gearbox, windscreen body and roof. Basically everything else that was metal, was stuffed, and i mean stuffed. Rust stuffed. Will post pics when i work out how?

    Also notice the different front end? suspension setup etc. well, the body has been chopped too, that's why the bubbles are on top of the guards because the shocks sit up high. looking at putting a 1500 front end in, how it should be, and get the bubbles removed, and the fiberglass reshaped. i'll do this when i decide on painting it. Notice the lack of floor pan, the floor just fell out as i was dismantling it!

    been sitting for two years, and locked up from that. apparently there's a oil type that you pour down spark plug holes to try crank it over? know of it?
