manx style pan redo
« on: February 02, 2014, 09:20:53 PM »
After years of running our buggy in the sand with a rusty and mangled pan , it is finally time for a new pan.
We started with two pans , an irs rear half and a link pin front half and new pan halves all cut 15 1/2 "

 
quick and easy way to deal with the way the pan lines up after cutting


Planing on using a 3" body lift





Quick and dirty rust paint

So we're making some progress . Got the front and rear suspensions together , basically just stock stuff here
 with an adjustable front beam but all set at approx stock height.  With the light weight it ends up a little raised .
just about ready for the body. No front brakes again(for now) but I will now have front shocks which will be some
old used stock oil shocks . Rear shocks will be kyb gas-a-just.






Seats will be mounted to tracks rather than directly to a rusty pan

clutch and throttle tubes welded on again

love my original hurst

Hey Hans
Looks good. I recognize the green parts on your buggy.  Reduce re use recycle. I'm still trying to fig out my front shocks?

Had to dig the buggy out of the snow to get it on to the new pan.


we spent half a day trying to get the shift tube right

He's getting pretty good with the torch for a 17 year old

and finaly sitting on the pan (just)

the 3" body lift now gives us clearance for some big tires. these are borrowed vintage 14.50 desert tracks

This last saturday was a total down poor all day but we are heading to the dunes in less than a week
so we had get to work. We set up the canopy on the driveway (because there's no room to work in the garage)
and spent the whole day finishing up the buggy just enough to run it on the dunes.

we do now have turn brakes



out for a test



a good friend helped us out with some  LED head lights and LED whip
