Default Thunder Tiger Silver Fox

Long road but I finally finished my Thunder Tiger Silver Fox Gold Edition restoration. Any more TT owners out there? (sorry for the huge photos):



This is how I got it from the Pit of Despair to the Bath of Shame



Finished Product. Wish I had some new wheels and tires though. Maybe someday eBay



Chain drive was a headache but I managed



Header made from flex gas pipe



Carbon fiber laminate covers a multitude of sins



Rescued the front bumper



wanted to mount the antenna without going through the driver doll. McGyverd it





couldn't find some parts had to improvise



The linkage was a nightmare but I managed



Found some braided fuel line... kinda cool. Refinished the roll cage in metallic gun metal auto paint

Nice work!

I'm a huge vintage buggy fan.

looks good! I had one years ago (like 1986) and had a ton of fun with it. Your chain tensioner should be on top of the chain pushing it down
