Purchase a MK1 chassis as a flat pack, as tacked or as fully welded. This has the front-end bulkhead with a mounting plate for a Howe steering rack, the rear bulkhead, and all the shock mounts set up for :
• Front: 2.0 x 10" coil over and 2.5 x 14" bypass
• Rear 2.5 x 16" coil over and 3.0 x 18" bypass
Purchase Revrange front arms (upper and lower) and uprights.
Purchase Revrange Rear arms or find suitable arms. This chassis allows for some Southern cross, Jimco, Cheowith, and other manufacturers - we can supply a dimension drawing if required. You can use any rear arms but it is your issue if something does not fit or work correctly. We can supply the Revrange rear arms with a mounting plate for the rear hubs if you know what you are using.
Purchase our fiberglass panels. The panel set consists of seven panels,
• a bonnet • 2 side panels • 2 rear panels • a dash • a roof panel.
We will supply you with a spreadsheet that has all of the components and their part numbers that we have used on our existing buggy. This includes the Heim joints, frontend bushes, steering arms and lengths, steering racks, front and rear hubs, Front stubs, shocks etc.
This is a complete shopping list and you can find a supplier such as Kartek and they will be able to supply everything that you need. This is only what we have used and you are free to change any components to a suitable substitute.
We will supply you with .dxf drawings for the following components,
these components can also be purchased from us:
• The floorpan • The roof plate • Rear sump guard plates • tabs for the roof
• tabs for the floorpan • mirror mounts • Rear number panel • Roof number panel
The approx Costs for YOU to build a rolling chassis:
Mk1 Buggy chassis: $6500, Front arms, Front uprights , Rear Arms jigs $2450, Fibreglass Panels: $3500
About $20,000 for the components (we have used) to finish it off, this includes • FK heims • Fox racing shocks • Howe and sweet power steering • Tatum front and 934 mid-board rear hubs • Tatum Brakes (4 piston front and 6 piston rear) • Seats and harnesses • Pedals • Limit straps • Safety gear • Method rims • BFG tyres
The engine and gearbox should be an early consideration. The chassis has enough room to accommodate an LS1 and an Albins box - so room will not be an issue. This chassis is ideally suited as a Pro-light - class 10 or class 2 (1650) but there is no reason why it cannot be built into a light, strong, unlimited buggy. Once you have chosen your engine gearbox combination you will need to consider axels, fuel tank, radiator, plumbing and wiring.
