Right Click copy and when you want to post it in your message here right click paste. And it will show a code. Then it should show up on here! That's really easy too!

Keeping the firewall etc... will sure save some time and effort.
Take lots-o-pics and document your build.
Keep us posted!

Does anyone know if my radiator will work as well as when it was mounted vertical?
MikeW used a radiator for a porsche when he mounted it above his engine. I cant remember which porsche model it came from, but from the factory thats how they are used. The filler was at a 90 degree angle pointed up, and the hose routing was designed for a horizontal installation.
That buggy looks real sweet. I bet if you did that with a EA82 Turbo model, that thing would flat out COOK!

Another questions would be what are the most common items that fail on the trail when 4x4ing? ex. CV joints etc...

EA82 axles are pretty tuff, especially with your lower weight , you dont want to stress them more then 1" over stock to do so you will have more failure , alot of guy have the stubs twist off the rear diff, myself Ive never seen it, the smaller the tires and the less the weight will keep you alive, Ive had trouble with the front radius rods, they tend to bend when you hit stuff hard, theres aways the loose nut holding the steering wheel:eek:

might want to make your main cage support more vertical or do a hell of a lot of triangulated bracing.

As is I don't think it has one "safe" hit/roll in it.
Add Steel. Document the build. Don't look back.

Nothing like being 15 miles from camp, having both of your rear coil overs catastrophically(sp) exploding. We were force to replace the rear springs with some Aspen logs we cut on the trail. It was a little rough drive home "only" 45 miles.
