    I can't remember, is your chassis a 4 seater? I was thinking it was so I'm surprised at how much shorter it is than your K5 frame. I thought the overall lengths were closer. :thinking:

    He has a pickup frame I believe.

    As for the question your building a buggy just go ahead and get rid of all the stock sheetmetal and build it all to fit and look good.

    Thanks guys, Im ditching the core support, reusing the front tube grill, I'll figure out a way to mount it. I'll probably buy a shorter aluminum radiator and lean it a little. Here are some pics of it in its place itys going to sit. It is a truck frame rear tank is a burb 40 gallon tank that Im not going to reuse I'll be using a 20 gallon aluminum tank, thats about the biggest you can fit inside of the dimension restricted area. I will also ditch the fan.
