I've been wanting to build a buggy for a few years now but haven't had the time. With the RONA these last few months its given me some time to focus on this project and a few more. I've had a good many of these parts for awhile so here's a list. I have a bunch of pictures on a couple phones so I'll get them uploaded as I can. As each part was delivered I drew it up in Solidworks.

6.0 Engine
TH350 Trans
Atlas 4 speed
Dana 60
Dana 70
Kings
Racelines with BFG's.

One of the first parts I drew up was my King Shocks. I made each part individually so I could move it in the assembly.

The next part that UPS brought was my trans cooler. I will say this, during the rona shipping sucked. I waited several times for 30 to 45 days to get parts from FEDEX because it tracked being at the hub here but when I got there they couldn't find it.

I ordered this cooler https://www.jegs.com/i/Derale/259/15900/10002/-1

then took measurements and brought it into Solidworks. This is one of the only parts I added color to just because it was cool.

The next part that came in the mail was from Wide Open Design and it was the winters shifter. https://www.wideopendesign.com/winters-shifter

Again, like a broken record I drew this in Solidworks. The main purpose for doing all of this is to save time as I do this will I'm on the couch watching TV with my wife.

At this point, I'm tired of drawing and not making. So I drew these tube ends and then turned them on the lathe and put the holes on the mill.

I'm not a machinist but I think they turned out great. I went ahead and made 8 or 9 of them while I was at it. I don't plan on using all of them but who knows I may.

I'll post more tomorrow when I have time. I need to get some sleep.

You're gonna have a lot of hours into this... Are you using a chassis or drawing your own?
Drawing my own. I have some time in drawing all the parts and frame etc. I have all of that finished already. I'm just posting as I have time.

I regretted no spending more time in CAD on mine. Many hours of trial and errors (and costly too) could have been avoided if I spent time locking everything in 3D before.

Chris, I'm eager to see what's coming, you have some skills for sure.

Good work so far. I like the end caps. I spent over 7 years building my buggy for a variety of reasons, and I took very few pictures during the build process.

Just a few parts pictures. I got these Crane drive flanges. Also, the 7075 Aluminum link material that will go into the steel tube link materials.

For this chassis design I will be laying the radiator down a good bit so I decided to make a new expansion tank and catch tank. It kind of hurts my feels to cut on the griffin radiator.

I ordered king bump stops from Filthy Motor Sports. The same company I ordered my king coil overs from. Once they came in, which took a couple months, I got right to drawing it up.

More CAD work. Lots and lots of CAD work. I use the time watching TV with my wife to draw these parts so its a win win. Drew up the 1.25 Hiems so I can used these in the assemblies. If you have used Solidworks you can make each part and then make a sub assembly so you can move each part.

I am not sure I will even use these but I bought some of the trail gear tube joints. Went ahead and modeled it, just in case.
