Hi guys,
I am now the owner of this fine machine and its still going ok apart form 4th gear pops out sometimes [any help would be awesome}
I have done some mods to it,standard suspension,bigger tyres,power steering,middle windows removed and some other bits and bobs.
Currently changing wheels/tyres and gonna lower it a little now. We did one holiday in it last year to woolacombe {i live near stansted airport} and had a great time in it and driving it,was considering to sell it as I like Baja bugs and beach buggys,im still going to do the things to it i want .Anyway thanks Richard for the in depth rebuild and yes I still have the folder with a cd reguarding what you have done.
cheers all

I watched Richard build this.
He bought it to the club paddock at busfest. one year, it was a fabulous piece of engineering.

Good news that it's still going strong
