Once the floor has been poured and I can start doing things to the shop I would welcome any help, especially in areas where my knowledge is a little slim.

The shop is finished on the outside, we have heat and running water and we've got a little of the electric done and I've got my next buggy inside but we still have a lot of work to do inside the shop. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and show the progress.

The shop has been taking up more of our time than I thought, but I'm not a carpenter I just plug away at it. I was going to post pictures a couple weeks ago but got caught up in what we were doing and forgot about it. Here is what it was looking like inside the shop a couple weeks ago. I'll try to keep up a little bit better in the future. I've got the buggy inside the shop and I'm getting anxious to start working on it again.

It's about time that I got back to the build, its a little after midnight so only a couple pics tonight. Finally put a press brake together so that I could bend some metal for brakets and such. It worked so well on a 3/8" x 6" piece I thought I'd try it on some 1/2" x 6" for a bridge to link the rear.

Very nice! Do you plan on running coils or coilover shocks? Looks like the suspension will have tons of travel.

I'm going to be running coil overs, I've got them ordered now but it will be a little bit before I get them. In the mean time I've got plenty of other things to do. I think that I've got enough room around the links to put the leafs back on just to hold the frame up till I get the coil overs mounted. Then I can get the bed built and the fuel tanks mounted. The pic that I posted had the lower liinks mounted in single shear so I'm still working on the brakets. I'll take pics as I get to things.

I've been working on the buggy but I haven't posted any pictures for quite some time. Here's a few pics of the slow progress.
