Got an email with a tracking number for my missing suspension parts been a long 9.5 weeks.

With the help of friends I also got set-up to weld aluminum so I can get the rest of the floor and firewall squared away .

Picked up more tube last night to hopefully finish everything that will require.

Also got the rest of my brake pedal stuff as well.

Picked up my fuel cell today, tomorrow finish modding it for the sending unit and hopefully that is taken care of.

Hopefully it'll be a busy weekend.

thats an RCI fuel cell same one I had in my last buggy, all aluminum no bladder, unless he had a custom bladder made?

Whoever welded that aluminum did a nice job looks great!!!

This is how I did mine

Already planning on changing the motor mounts.

Not building it to race u4 or trec, building it to have fun. And yes its an RCI cell.

I don't have the time to commit to compete, and I am not a good competitor, I am to competitive.
