Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

One of the issues I always seem to have is WTF do I do with the rear number plate on the kick-out .... simple question but no real solution. That is of course until now with the TurnKeyManx rear Number Plate mounting thingy :) http://www.meyersmanx.info/ManxInfoGallery/var/resizes/Meyers-Manx-Kickou...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

The TurnKeyManx fuse panel is designed to flip up when working on it so you simply sit it in place and start wiring it all up. As you go your group stuff and make it look as neat as possible. http://www.meyersmanx.info/ManxInfoGallery/var/resizes/Meyers-Manx-Kickout/Kick-Out-Traditional/KO-1-of-2016...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

With the body on and in place, clean it up and seal it on . http://www.meyersmanx.info/ManxInfoGallery/var/resizes/Meyers-Manx-Kickout/Kick-Out-Traditional/KO-1-of-2016/P1040449.JPG Now we can move on to other stuff like finishing the body fit out One thing to pay attention to is the alignment of th...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

So with the body ready to go on we can look at the next step which is bolting it down. To do this we like to use the factory pan holes so we remove the body and start on the pan. With the body on you can't see the factory holes so you need to either drill from under side which sucks or make it so yo...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

With the pan done it is time to fit the body, now this in itself brings its own issues. We start by putting the pan together as shown complete with wheels. Once that is done we sit the body on the pan http://www.meyersmanx.info/ManxInfoGallery/var/resizes/Meyers-Manx-Kickout/Kick-Out-Traditional/KO-...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

Keep in mind this is a VW based buggy. The Subaru ones start at $35 k and go up. The DSBE was more than your Jeep :)

Hi Stu, thanks for the feedback, I can't take all the credit I have more than a few guys working with me these days, all I take credit for is being a grumpy bugger who makes them do it the right way even if it takes till midnight every day :twisted:

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

Hey Parj, I have no issues with Jeeps, they have done wonderful things for the offroad world and the way in which the after market has embraced them to fix all their shortaffls has helped both grow. For me I will stick to Buggies over Jeeps as they just have no character and if I want a car like tha...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

What is the cost of this great machine ? I reckon you could buy a Jeep Rubicon for less than this price ? My ordinary Wrangler 2dr sport only cost AUD $38k This buggy would have to approach over $50k ? Sure you could buy a Jeep and then do a Jeep things with it, sort of like looking at my house and...
