Buggy Body Kits
The Prowler is similar to the Manx with some subtle upgrades and modifications. It has a slightly shorter wheelbase than the Manx. Chassis must be shortened by 15.5 inches. The arches are wider (front 1.5" rear 2") which allows lowering and tyres with more width. The rear is more open than other buggies, fitter a larger engine with big carbs requires no cutting or reshaping. If the Prowler bonnet is not to your taste, then we can supply a combination of a Manx bonnet and bounty hunter screen for a whole new look. A standard Beetle fuel tank will fit under he bonnet and 2 battery boxes will go under the rear seat.
Buggy bodies are hand made from only the highest quality glass fibre matting and resins, using two thick applications of gel coat followed by a 7 ounce lay-up of glass giving an overall thickness of 6mm. Race weight bodys are also available using a 5 ounce lay-up for a discounted price. All bodies are fitted with a pair of under body strengthening tubes running from front to rear on each side, tubes second as a handy housing for the wiring loom.
Bonnets ard Dashboards are supplied aleady joined together for ease of build and provide a strong mounting point for the Windscreen. All pieces of the Body kit come fully Flow Coated on the underside. Flow Coat is a satin finish gel coat which covers and protects the bare fibre glass, preventing glass splinters during build and is a great finish and easy to clean. Fitment for the standard beetle fuel tank can be found on the body, under the bonnet. Body tubs mount to the floor in much the same way as the beetle body which was removed, so the original bolts and washers may come in handy when building your buggy.
