New 5 seat build. Ground up.

Recommended Posts

you really outdid yourself on this one... the stance is absolutely perfect ?

Hows the front visibility with the higher bulkhead?

Pretty sure you nailed it with the embroidery in the seats...

That car is bad AF!

Thank you. The bulkhead is the same height as the top of the dash bar. The tubes run straight across.  One of our major emphasis is visibility in the dunes.

IMO - you just became a "brand name" car

Thats great  - I agree 100% on visibility.   

Did you get a chance to measure usable 4 corner travel with the wheels and tires on?

Absolutely one of the best cars I have seen. Loved following the build up to this point and cant wait to see the final fit and finish. VERY nice build and would own this chassis no questions asked. Sooooo get building some more :-).

Excellent work!  What would a chassis like this cost to have built?  You got me thinking  ?

I guess a nice car like that has a hood and front bulkhead in its future but I ran mine with no body pannels last week and loved the visability like yours with the open front section. I needed a temporary side panel to keep my foot in the car and instead of covering the whole section of the car and blocking visability I just put on this small piece. Right now I gotta say I just may build a body like this with zero body work in front of it. Its kinda fun watching the front coils and nice to see the bowl down and directly in front of you.

Car looks awesome. You guy's flat rated that build. After hearing stories of people waiting years, your build time should be a real attractive  advertisement for future customers.

Edit to add, anyone on the other side of the pond looking to buy, triple the price. Just remember us back home.

A SxS would have been just as fun. 

:rolleyes:

Nice job on the new car! Looks like Buttercup has dried out, it was really wet last weekend.
