Where has this forum been all my life?
« on: June 28, 2015, 12:15:28 PM »
   I came across this forum while looking through google image results of buggy builds, trying to see if there is anyone out there who still takes pride in their work. I have browsed through various forums over the years always watching build sections for someone who doesn't use Primitive Pete as a how to reference guide. I realized pretty quick that anyone who has the time to post 60 post times a day, arguing that black steel pipe is fine for a roll cage and provide evidence from is K5 Blazer build is probably not the person building the kind of things I want to see. So after looking through a few Project Logs and and Machinery Builds, and seeing a site with 84 new topics this year and a JOKES sections that hasn't been posted in months; for the first time I felt compelled to sign up and introduce myself.

  I am 25 years old and live in Southeast Michigan. I work as a Mechanical Design Engineer at a Robotic Systems company. I have always loved building things, from when I was a little kid build Lego cars out of matching color bricks. In high school I competed in Welding and Machining Competitions through MITES and Skills USA. Third Place in the State at MITES, got me a job at a small Plastic Injection Mold Shop where I became the go to guy for building something, and went on to be the head Programmer/Operator for the Horizontal CNC department before leaving for my current job. I have worked on Catia, VISI, UG NX9.0, Solidworks and FIDES <-(but I'll deny it).

   The reason I post all of that is because I have never actually built a buggy but I would like to. However, at the moment, having just bought a house my projects are a bit more "big Saturday planned Home Depot ; Bed Bath and Beyond if there is time". So I will try to post a few pictures of past and currents projects in hopes of gaining a little bit credibility, and I look forward to checking out this forum once in a while when I have time.

Sounds like you have the credentials to do just about anything you set your mind to.  Welcome to the insane madness.  Looks like you have a kitchen that some women would die for. Let us see your man cave.  Pictures pictures pictures. did I mention pictures.  rofl. I'll for sure watch your build when you start it.  Again welcome.

We are funny enough without the jokes section........

Closing on a fixer-upper next week. will add another 6 months or so to the already year long hiatus that the cross country move has caused.

I feel your pain.

Welcome to the site! Very VERY nice work on your builds, really like your vision! Can't wait to see what you create with 4 wheels, internal combustion and a cage.

And I do believe this is the first time in  my adventures around the Sun that am able to tell others that I know a guy with a Fuchsia colored crapper...
Please tell me you saved that... I know many that would pay good money for it.... Only to say "I own a Fuchsia colored crapper.."

^^^^ Enemy that was first thing I noticed too!!  rofl

I think you'll find we all do weekend projects, most dont have anything to do with buggys.  Keeping the Mrs happy will allow for more buggy time.  If ya dont have a misses you will soon with a pad like that!!

Welcome aboard, we will try and work on jokes section.
