Thanks everybody.. its been a evolution since day one.
Once I got it rolling in 2008, I've changed things a few times over the years..

Interior and wheels mainly.. I wanted WIDE slots... just fits the persona IMO .....


So went from

Ha.. yeah sometimes.... oil changes and services..
Actually the whole family has access.. we all drive it.. when we want too..

The wood work and rack.. was a more recent afterthought.

My son and I had a camping/road trip planned 3 years ago.. I wanted something for the ability to throw on supplies and go and also protect my bald head from the evil rays.. (or rain)
Soo.. built a quickie rack literally 2 nights before the trip and had so many compliments on it.. I decided to run with it and more..thanks to all the rain we ended up in..

After that trip...for my application... I realized a couple of things real quick..and have made changes to correct...

1.. .No place for any type of carpet in a Buggy.. Stays wet and is a pain to keep clean..
and
2 ... ALWAYS carry rain and thermal gear ...
I should have known better from riding motorcycles for years.. Never trust Mother Nature.... Shes a mean Bitch.

3.. it needed seats that didn't make you feel like you're spilling out on high speed turns.. so we found out..


Anyway ALL the black marine carpet came out.. including the rear storage box it had...
Floor is now bare coated with rubber mats and drain holes plus I decided to roll on with more wood. Built a new storage compartment (and speaker house).

Ended up pretty nice, useful, and 100% different than most....
Always subject to more changes..
I recently added 3 bar spinners to the wheel caps... and now entertaining a front and rear bumper change to incorporate a tow bar for a tag-a-long..

Here was the quickie rack, spillomatic seats..and our son


Have a surfboard that comes and goes (has much more decals now ) ..
Better shot of the rear

Great buggy. She looks fantastic and I love the fact that you actually take her places. As a motorcyclist with over fifty years in the saddle, I wouldn't say that Mother Nature is a "mean bitch." She's just easily entertained.
