What did you start out with?  What does your buggy look like now?  Did you buy your buggy as a kit and start with a donor vehicle?  Or did you buy your buggy built and then fix it up?

Here's my Before and After.  Yes there's a lot in between but that's another tale.

As I found it.

Getting ready for body work by friends.
Image

Getting a new Condor chassis my Dave Barrett.
Image

A roller..
Image

Almost done.

This is the first buggy I have completly redone and at my tender age said I would not do another one. However, I have a friend in need and it keeps me off the couch, besides he pays all the bills, how cool is that??

Here's a couple shots of mine:
Body as I found it

It sat on a shortened chassis for a while, then I went to a tube chassis from Hawkeye Buggies

And as it sits now

This is what it looked like once Tony Dean and I brought it back from Mexico (actually El Centro but the previous owner brought it across the border from San Felipe).

Image

Here it is finished and getting ready to pull the jet ski to the Columbia River...

Image

And here we are at this year's Clearlake Run put on by Gene Condon. Diana LOVES this stuff which is why we have it...

Hey Buggy Bob;

You should show the before and after pictures of your ex-Resorter. That is a truly amazing transformation...

Wow, that metal flake came out real nice. I keep trying to decide if I want to do a flake job or not. (And if I want to do it myself or not)

Here's a Manx that my brother and I built for a friend of his. Taught us a lesson. The owner held us up for 9 months while he figured out what gauges he wanted. Now we just build buggys and sell them the way we like them built. This one did turn out nice but the owner says it will never see anything off road. To bad for him...

After...

Sorry,
All I have is a before picture. Plenty of current pictures in my build thread (which insinuates that I'm doing the building, but all the heavy work is being done for me.
