Pyrorocketeer Posted January 7, 2008 Share Posted January 7, 2008 Well ladies and gents, its been awhile since I have posted anything about any current projects so I'd thought that I would share. I've been looking to rebuild the sandrail, and have been looking for a good used frame, or some abandoned project that was started, but lately I've been looking into some street fiberglass dune buggies (since I already have the shortened pan). Problem is, is that the new bodies run about $1200, and it is getting harder and harder to find a reasonably priced used body. But I recently stumbled upon this.... Those are two freshly reconditioned fiberglass tub buggy molds that will make the body pictured below. I contacted the shop owner via email a few days ago, for the price, and if they were still available, and surprisingly he said yes, and he only wanted $400 for the set of molds! Since I've had quite a bit of self-taught fiberglassing/mold making experience, I couldn't respond quick enough to his email to tell him that I'd take them off his hands. So... hopefully today I'm going to send him some money for a down-payment, and then in a week or two when I have off work, go and pick them up. After that, my plan is to pop off a body or two for myself (perfect my large scale fiberglassing) then start advertising to sell them for something like $800 a pop! That should be a decent extra income to support my addiction my car hobby for awhile! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
