Maybe I should be thinking of upgrading from my couple of SWB to a nice new LWB ! umm.



As they say once you have gone long you can't go back.

I am bias and I love Manx Buggies but it bought a tear to my eye when I first saw my Manxter sitting next to my Manx. Now the Manx is sold as it just didn't do it for me anymore when I look at the kids and realised that life had changed a rear seat was a very important part of my world.

If it is going to be a 'Street Buggy', is the radiator going to be mounted Differently like up front ? on the sides ? or on the back Like Brad's ? With the back cut out to fit the engine/box will it be a two seater like the GS Limo Cruiser ? Or will the rear seat still fit ? As it is a R and D Buggy will it be for sale once completed and tested to finance more R and D Buggies ?

The radiator at this stage is being mounted at the back in the wing.....even with the back cut out the seats still fit in the back.....just a little parcel tray room is lost in place of the stock subaru intercooler......which if needs be could have been modified and mounted somewhere else but going from a 2 seater to a 4 seater buggy ... room isnt an issue :lol: rear seats arent effected by the cut at all....it actually looks like its meant to be.....
if in doubt hit it with speed.... just don't hit the cactus!

Any more progress ? I'm keen to see how it all goes before I convert my Baja.
