Manx Bodys

Recommended Posts

Scott I bought one of your mid wide body's about 2 months ago. It's the maroon one that play tech is building the frame for. Anyways I am picking up my frame next week and one of the many things I am trying to figure out how to do is my lights. Do you know of any car or truck headlight and tail light assemblies that have the right curvature to attach to that body and look good. Thanks.

Critchy

BTW the color looks great on that body.

Honestly, I have always ran the traditional 7" chrome headlights because nobody will mess with you. I have never found a good DOT headlight that I like enough to be married to.

Yea that would be great if you can send me a pic. I want to find a set up like a car has, that way blinkers, brake lights, and tail lights are all in one piece. And one with the headlights and blinker all one piece also for the front end.

Can you post or pm some measurements of your long travel bodies? I have a custom long travel 4 seat sand car that I was thinking of adding a body to.

give me a call when your next to your car with a tape measure. it's much easier. I have found that most chassis' do not work with my manx bodys without heavy modifications.

I have a custom 4 seat prerunner buggy chassis I am building and was wanting to get a custom body made for it... Do you do custom bodies or just the Manx style bodies?

I see the question has been asked before about locating windshield glass

I rescued a buggy body last week that was sure to die in the AZ desert sun.

It could use a new windshield (just the glass)

Is that something you have available or can source?

Maybe some Glamis postal from Bug Shields IF that could be arranged closer to Yuma AZ

Bugshields is were I get them. I only have complete windshields. You could try a glass company.

The body that is on The rugged rzr is an off the mold item, There were allot of mods done to the rzr to make it fit though. Its the same long body I have building for years.

If people are interested, then someone needs to get in touch and we can create a body specifically for them, but I cant afford to create a special mold unless someone else is willing to help market them.

I believe John at Playtech has a version of this front end he sells. I would hit him up. I don't have a good fabricator for chassis stuff anymore.
