As promised Mark has sent me over some photos of his Manx 11 just back from the trimmers...
New hood from Whiffs Trimmings and the interior wrapped in luscious black carpet. The hood looks fab with the rear window being the NoFear eyes

Marks Manx II

Mark kindly sent me some photos of his recently completed ECM Manx II, Mark started off with a GP lwb buggy shortened to fit a shortened pan. After a nut and bolt restoration, the only thing used from the original build was the chassis, I'm sure you'll all agree he has built a fabulous buggy! Enjoy the photos!

Cool stance, rolling along on chrome modulars.. Red flake body from ECM

Brand new 1776cc motor, fully chromed and detailed with colour matching red accessories with the fumes being spat out through a pair of chrome cannons

Here is a photo of what Mark started out with

Mark has also visited Whiffs trimming services and promised me a coupe of photos of the outcome..
Fantastic looking buggy Mark and thanks again for sending the photos

Stephen sent me more photos of his Sidewinder, he got it on the road in June and has now covered over 1200 miles, and yes.. he is still waiting for his front wheels to be delivered!

Enjoy the photos!

Cool looking Sidewinder, if you look back through the previous posts you'll see the other 2 sets of photos Stephen sent me of his build.
hopefully Stephen will send me a few photos of it with it's new front wheels fitted (if they ever turn up)

Lack of Updates

Sorry to the people who have kindly visited this blog, but unfortunatly I have ran out of UK buggies to post any more.. if anything exciting happens I'll post it, but I guess this blog is going to rot!

A big thanks to all that have sent me details about their buggies, keep on buggying!

All the best

Ryans Sidewinder

Next up is Ryans Sidewinder, based on a '73 chassis. Ryan has recently finished it and got it through the MOT and is now all legal and on the road!

Slot mags in Chevy pattern front and rear, 7x14 up front and 8.5x15 on the rear, disc brakes up front with drums on the back.

Ryans Sidewinder is pushed along by a 1641cc motor with dual 36 dells, Engle 100 cam and ported and polished heads, coupled up to a Rancho pro-street box

The interior features fibreglass buckets, grant wheel and a nice looking Berg signature series shifter. The chassis was superbly restored featuring Irs, take a look at the links to Ryans buggy on the other side of the page to see a few shots of his chassis build.

Cheers for the photos Ryan, I'm sure you'll enjoy using your fab buggy!
