Manx buggy

Recommended Posts

Thank you very much, Chris. I had fun with the kit, but it's so small. The build would have been easier if I didn't lose the little collector that fits between the pipes from the engine to the exhaust.

Was it that the parts are too small, or we are getting too old to see them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you mean "we", Chris? Being in your early 40's makes you a pup being viewed from the far side of the 60's. Oh to be young again . . . .

Nice job. I like the interior. The Mustang taillights were popular on these back in the day.

Thanks, Jason. The Mustang light were very popular. The 1:1 Empi Imp I had used them. You really can't see it in the pic, but the interior floor was sprayed with Rustoleum texture paint - gives the interior a multi-color bedliner look.

Thanks, Dominik. It is small. A normal VW is small and then you shorten the frame 14 1/2 inches for a dune buggy.

Thank you, ??? I would have used your name but it's not there, like it's supposed to be.

The pulley cover was in the kit box.

No problem, Didier. Glad you fixed it and welcome to the forum.

The blue buggy looks like a 1:1 and is very nice. I like the work you have going on with the kit although I can't read a word of what it says. Post some pics.
