Wouldn't mind getting a rundown on the model range available from Meyers Manx, if possible pics & dotpoints on the main differences would be great , as I'm not quite up with what is on offer (or point me in the right direction where to view them to get me up to speed)
Thanks, Pud :)

Thanks for that, didn't realise there was so much of a range! :o So the dualsport has been lengthened by 6", I take it this is 6" longer than an already shortened by 14.5" (or 14.25") wheelbase, not 6" longer than standard beetle wheelbase? I like the stance with the 3" higher body, wondering if would you get a similar effect by fitting a 3 inch 'chassis stiffener' with a manxter 2+2 body?

Still looking forward to seeing this build :)

The Dual sport has a longer wheelbase than standard due to the suspension - 3x3 rear arms and front Beam or A-Arm moving the front wheels forward.

The Body still fits on a standard chassis.

Yes you can. This is what we did with the Blue Manxter but with standard suspension.
