If you just break down and use a brush and roller..........you wont have to worry about all the imperfections in the glass. It will save a lot of work and sweat. Maybe Rhino Liner on the outside, DuneRat!

yes, I showed him the pics a while ago. He should post them as a reference to what his will look like done. Also, agree the color scheme on the Dune Buggy will look good, but last I heard he was talking Candy Blue. Blood is also Blue so............this could be a teaser.

A lot has been done Smile I have a friend working on the interior. The color that I will be going with is Lt.Grey and Carbon Fiber . The body will be Candy Blood Red. I will have the chassis , Roll cage and a lot of misc. stuff Powder Coated while I'm down in the Keys it will be ready for pickup when I return. Now I need to find some cool 16 or 17" wheels that have a Chevy Lug pattern 4.75 . I will start building the engine after I get back from the Keys. It's getting close to be rolling.....

Dropped the engine case to get checked out, Heads to get fly cut, high rev springs installed, Crank to get checked out. Thanks to Tom

Then dropped the fuel tank off to get checked out and have it lined so I don't need to worry about leaks.


Installed the seats and seat belts today

Moving right along Smile

I need some wheels now, Chevy lug pattern 4.75, 16"
