Thread: Dune Buggy

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default Dune Buggy

    so my friend wanted to build a dune buggy but has no fabrication skills at all so i told him i'd help him out and show him everything i know on the subject as we build it. Got the 1 5/8" .120 wall DOM tubing on friday along with the 1 1/2 .250 wall DOM for the 4 link and the control arms. Were using a Trick Tools model 3 bender which i am quite impressed with. drivetrain is a chevy 350/350 and a 10 bolt rearend (will upgrade when it breaks)

    the only thing i dont like about how its turning out is the rear main hoop, it looks too wide.
    but anyways let me know what you think. BTW: there will be alot more triangulation, the top rails are just sitting there right now.

    we have s10 spindles and brakes and balljoints so im going to build the arms for the front. He has an s10 rearend too but its pretty narrow, so i traded him my 8.5" out of the camaro since im not going to use it and its got a limited slip.
