Default Theory build

Since I was in Elementary school I dreamed about building my own car from scratch. For years I bounced around ideas, performed heavy modifications to vehicles, but never had all the equipment or training to do everything. Well I am in my senior year of the technical training to be a High School shop teacher and finally have the training (basic) and equipment. I am in our final semester and I am taking a CAD/CAM course that focuses on design and CNC through the use of Auto CAD and Mastercam.

I told myself I wasn't going to do an epic time consuming project but here I am after a few hundred hour of design in Auto CAD, unknown hours agonizing over the tool paths in Mastercam and around 7-8 hours on machining time on the Haas VF-1 CNC mill.

Today (April 14, 2011) I cut out the majority of the chassis parts, including the chassis, front and rear bulkheads, motor mount, diff holders and brace, as well as a few other little parts.

I will try to get pictures up this weekend so you can all check out what i'm up to.

I DON'T THINK THIS BUGGY WILL BE LIKE ANY THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN BEFORE and should make for some interesting conversation.
