I just wanted to comment on how I like this build.

That is all.

This makes me want to get out to the garage and braze together more stuff. Are you using tubing or solid rod?

Made some more progress, still have to move around some bars to get the proper geometry, and will shorten the rear links a little, also working on interior, abd maybe a low fastback

Very Nice! Clean lines, light weight and the wide nose gives it a look.

What is a Taga top?

Perhaps that's a typo and he meant Targa top?

Cool. I just googled Targa, also a thing I was unfamiliar with. I didn’t realize the Porsche ‘Targa’ was a reference to a particular roof presentation.

You learn something new everyday.

I made some major changes to the cage design. I wanted to centralise the weight and add strength. I also did the targa. Not sure how ill finish.

Test fitted everything and it all works well.

Cage and build are looking great. Are you going to do some cross bracing in the door gap area?

Smart cage changes, but I have to admit I really liked the look of the wide nose. It was the Star Wars Land Speeder meets beach buggy. You are more in Wraith Territory now. Looks like you have it powered up? Run well?

Thanks for the feedback,

I likes the boat nose too... But it wasn't perfect, and it annoyed me, I may still add it back!

Some pics with the body on
