Hay Terry  this video didn't work ...its in an avi. format and this site doesn't take that.

so I'll try to explain it ......measure the distance from the back air intake to the front tip of the front panel in the skp. file, if the panels will fit then start to build them you can worry about there distance from the frame of the kart later.

I also understand what you said about the top being so low ....you are probably going to have to do what I did ...raise everything up, all panels, my ground clearance is about 8-9 inches because I had to position the first arm panels  at an angle and then have each panel after that propagate /tilt a little so the top would come out even...buy doing this it raised the side panels up the frame buy about 4"

also from what I gather the primary thing that it going to dictate the side panels from the frame are the lobes/supports that come down from the top...the width of those is whats going to give you an idea of the placement of the side panels in relation to the kart frame....

play around with those ideas let me know what you come up with.

Thanks T-man for those ideas. Here's an update on the cardboard mock up on the cabin and the front forks. Everything you see here has been cut short, taped and laid out to fit the kart. The only thing I need to do here is cut the length.

hay Terry good work...I was wondering..you plan on keeping your front end and steering set-up for a while so are you going to put a stand-off set-up on the front to hold the arm panels on??

I ready don't know T-man what my friend has stored for me. I do know that the front fork panel will have some kind of front bracket or what you call standoffs to whole in place. The front end steering will stay the same for right now. Heres a pic of the front end made out of metal. The cardboard pieces will be next. To keep the strength and time is running out. Instead of cutting out the windows, I am going to use decals.

Well first of all, Happy Fathers Day to all on the board. I knew that we were not going to work on it today, but I did take some pics last night. Here are some teasers.

Ok...from this point on, you will see different shapes and sizes. As for me and my friend (Gadgetman), this will not be a original tumbler but a custom tumbler. The pics that you will see, some ideas we will keep and some we won't. Like I said from this point, lots of pics. We are open on any ideas, so fill free to drop line. Get ready, here is the CUSTOM TUMBLER
