Bought me a long travel, money being wired tomorrow. Test drove it while I was in AZ last week. Pretty basic car, but very low hours. Not really a build since it's better to buy them used/done, but I'll be changing a few things. Getting rid of the ugly vinyl and painting the skins will obviously be one of them.

Congratulations, that should be a lot more fun at Silver Lake.  :thumbup: 

 

 

But I agree, I've seen a lot of buggys in person and online and that has to be one of the ugliest ! :)

Nice! should take some jumps well. The wrap however, reminds me of those books where you put your nose to the page and pull it away to see the hidden image.

It's not JW's, and it looks like someone just went to the back of the line for buggy rides. :P

Looks exactly like that. First thing that is going once it's gets to MI.
