Cool looks like your making progress. 8) 8) 8)

Since your building a 3 seater, is the driver seat going to be in the middle?

Toy time $$$$ is tough but I sold my buggy.  While it did get to be a good performing mini I had things I wanted to do different-better-bigger.

So the first step, buggy loaded for last trip to meet up with buyer.


you've come a long way since this pic!!

Well I spent some time and $$ over last few weeks.  Really tring to kick this cooling issue.
So I moved the rad up higher, bought a bigger cfm fan.  Also picked up a remote oil cooler setup.  Has output for turbo too  ;D.  Got a small fan to put on that one too.  4 new Rigid dually leds for front/side viewing and scored 2 20" led bars for roof.  Tossing the halogen lights cause I'll need the amp.
You can keep your CHANGE, I'd like to keep my DOLLAR.

Slacker here, closer to trip more motivated I get.  Should be up and running this weekend.  Then to put on new roof and lights.  Maybe........

The remote oil cooler adapter is slick, fits will with nice braided lines.  Fan I ordered came in too large but I'm gonna give it a shot.  They were out of smaller one so just sub'd the larger out of blue.

Got the Radiator moved to its 3rd location now!!  kick  Also have a new fan with another 500cfm. Plumbed with hard lines, most of way.

And last pic, is well cause I'm gettin a little excited.   ;D ;D

I like that and I can't see how that won't work especially with the oil cooler

AH Grasshopper you have come a long way.    ;D

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

I agree with all.  And thanks to great folk here I learned 50% of what I know.  The rest was done the hard way.  Really hoping to give her hell this trip.  My nephew is super excited!!
