My new Manx style project

Postby scottsain » Tue Oct 10, 2006 9:23 am

just received my Berrien Buggy chassis and body yesterday. i am going to install a 4 inch KCW beam without shocks, IRS rear with flipped arms to reduce camber, Weld draglite 90 series wheels, close ratio gear box, 1915 with dual 40's, chopped windshield, and low back seats. i am going to paint it black and have the chassis powdercoated black as well. should move along pretty quickly and i will keep the pictures coming.

Looks sweet Scott. Did you make that chassis, or can you buy those?

I was gonna buy one of those before I bought my 60 but decided I wanted a driver not a complete project. I look forward to seeing how it goes for you Scott, as that will probably be my next project.

I remember back about 88 or 89 there was a black manx car built that was in a bunch of magazines. The owner filled in the side pod area between the tires lowered it and had a real nice tan interior. It was rolling on a set of centerline wheels , no rollbar, lowered headlights, it looked real good. I wish I had kept all of my magazines from then, I had hundreds.
Let me drop what Im doing and fix your problem

Black and TAN.... no substitute. f*&k the grey and black. Only other choice for black might be brick red or PURE white, not off white.

Good luck, it will be killer!

peaceout..
