Buggy Shop Projects
look into Larry's Shop to see what he's building this time!
Larry is currently working on two Sandfox 4 Seat buggies with the pick up option for customers Jeff and Richard. These buggies will be both off road and street, and will be running an Eco-Tech 2.2 engine and a 6 rib VW bus transmission. The pictures below are not in build order, we took pictures through the process of building the two buggies. We will be adding more pictures as our progress continues.
|Larry has been building these frames for 2 customers. This project is in progress and more pictures will be added along the way.||1.||2.|
|We started out by welding together a Sand Fox 4 Seat Chassis with pick-up option. This 4 seater is a smaller 4 seat frame that many times gets used as a 2 seater, giving you more room inside as well as more storage.||3.||4.|
