Default Fiona the Samurai

New thread that isn't clogged up with bullshit.
Actually got some work done.

The plan is to just build it on the stock front/Geo rear for now and set it up pretty much the same as Scottie had it set up except with a 16v engine, power steering, and very slight differences in suspension. I plan on doing a basic cage and 4 point seatbelts too.

Got a new grill

Got doors and headlights

Got the engine out of the Geo
And got a new front axle and trussed it.
Gonna work on getting the engine into the samurai frame tomorrow

So does anyone have a plasma cutter or band saw that could help me cut out some 1/4" plate?

You know I can't cut straight lines for shit.

Plus I don't have any cut off wheels, and I'm assuming it's gonna take a whole pack of them to cut all this out.
I should probably go pick some up. Lol
