Yamaha Project silverbullet liftoff!!

BrianAshby1

SilverBulletXP4 Sucka!
Ok this is going to be a slow build, i finally made up my mind to cut it up and widen/drop the rhino cage!!

i am going to do all the work myself and take my time on it...

so just right up front cause i know people always like to see the progress and i will do my best to keep it coming as soon as i do stuff...

here is the start!!

(mobile pictures hope they came out ok)

not to sure on how much wider and lower... but probably just as wide as i need to get the seats about 3 inches from the floor... and i want the roof as low as possible to where i have about 5-6 inches of head clearence...

biggest thing i want to accomplish and i know i will have to play with is visibility... i drove my freinds chopped and dropt rhino and it was hard seeing over the hood for duning... i am going to try and do things differently for visibility reasons...

good news is i think i am picking up about 5 sticks of .095 DOM this weekend... 1.5 inch!!!

wooo hoooo... more grinding and stripping down tonight... cant wait!!!:eek:
 
Sweet man sounds like you will have some long nights and full weekends comin up....I just kinda finished my pops ride and it was more work than what I thought it was going to be but was alot of fun and I learned alot from his build. Now I just to to finish the little stuff up so I can start on mine :D good luck and cant wait to see it done
 
ya i seen the rhino you finished up... looks sweet!!!

i anticipate some long nights and weekends... my wife isnt that happy about it lol o well!!!

:cool:
 
Ok so its been awhile since i have shown updates... thats due to the fact that originally a friend was going to let me build it in his garage using mostly his tools....

its nice to have friends that are willing to let you use there tools... but dont rely on it lol

since it was taking to long and seemed to be falling through i started buying my own tools... and building my work area in my garage... thats what took so long
