made some modifications to this picture, also would like a built in storage rack on the top weather proof with removable doors

Posted Image


I considered building this one, Rhinobuggys "Hummbug", but I didn't want to fabricate all the panels for the body.
It has the same frame as the "Bandit" that I built/stretched. The only difference is the body.
The frame portion is square steel, only the body is round tube.

I think you could easily build the tube portion in a couple weeks just working evenings & weekends.

My buddys made me use rock crawler quality steel, so it could have been lighter?
But it ain't gonna break!:lol:

Rage on Scott!

Uhhhhmmm!

If we could keep the conversation to a minimum,
we could all hear what's going on!!!:mad:

Excuse me that's my cell phone......
Hello....:lol:

...Yes, for the windshield,
I used Lexan and put a molding around the edge
and a foam weather seal tape against the metal.

I clean it carefully and so far have not replaced it.
I'll call you back later....
I want to get back to the build.:popcorn::popcorn:
