Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

While the pan was getting finished it was time to start on the loom. Although there are a number of looms people seem to use in Buggies I prefer to make my own as all the ones I have seen are a compromise and leave gaps in areas. By doing it in house we can control the quality and make sure we are h...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

Wow the days are flying by and it seems updates have been as fast as I would have liked. It is amazing how much effort it takes to keep pictures and info flowing when you are trying to stay on track with the build. Anyway ... So we had the buggy laid out and where inspecting it all to make sure we h...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

With the Buggy Pan taken care of it was time to turn our attention to the rest of the Buggy. Now a lot of people may think the way we build a buggy a bit crazy as we spend more time preparing than actually building, well at least it seems it some times :roll: So we have been ordering the parts we ne...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

Solid base means a solid buggy. The Turn Key Manx Pan is built, sealed and ready for action. Being this was part of a Turn Key Manx / Meyers Manx Special it got one of the Meyers Manx Tunnel Covers and Serial Numbers http://www.meyersmanx.info/ManxInfoGallery/var/resizes/Meyers-Manx-Kickout/Kick-Out...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

When it comes time to do the floor pan halves we use only Heavy Duty units from Wolfsburg West. It is important that all corners are cleaned of any old pan traces. We do this with a die grinder so we know it is smooth . http://www.meyersmanx.info/ManxInfoGallery/var/resizes/Meyers-Manx-Kickout/Kick-...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

When it comes to buggy building it is very important that you have solid bones. Every Turn Key Manx Build is done on one of our fully rebuilt VW based Floor Pan or Custom Tube Chassis. In this case we will be using a Type 1 Based Floor pan which is IRS in the back and Ball Joint up front. The pan is...

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

Re: Fastest Buggy Around .....

The Build begins like most with finding a suitable Donor Bug. As we prefer to use Twin Port 1600 Engines and IRS Transmissions we started with a 71 Super Bug. Although this means we can't easily use the floor pan that was ok as we have a good stock of Ball Joint / IRS Pans with clear title. The Car ...

Re: Manx SR for sale. Where am I going wrong?

All kit cars are not buggies, the SR is not a buggy simple. As for Bruce designing it wrong again it was Stuart who did it while working for Bruce and a large driving factor in doing it was to make it very hard to copy, so hard in fact it was not easy to produce, or cheap or profitable. I have so ma...

Re: Manx SR for sale. Where am I going wrong?

Well since you asked I guess it is only fair to respond. 1 - Your Ad sucks, your pictures are not good and you do not display anything in them that would justify the asking price, your details are sketchy and do not make for interesting or informative reading. 2 - You spent many many years ignoring ...
