Default Rock BUG-E build... Aka the "lug bug".

I've seen a lot of bug builds but never a tube chassis scale buggy. So here we go. I've already brazed the main parts of the body together. Now for the hard stuff.

The roof was a pain in the rectum.

That is cool. That curved roof must have been a challenge. Well done. Looking forward to seeing more progress.

Finally got the ladder frame built. I'm hoping it will qualify as a class 2 rig.

Awesome looking chassis, I can't wait to see how this turns out. Great job with that roof line.

Thanks fellas. Got a wee bit more done today. Decided to make some changes to the front. I always love the stinger look.

Finally got back too it and got most of the tube work finished. Shock towers, rock sliders and some supporting braces. Oh and the dam little nuts that secure the roof and side panels.

The towers look tall till you put the hood on.
