    i needed something in my fleet that got good gas mileage. running into town is only2 miles but they do it 20 times a day.

    for the summer i got them scooters, perfect 4 bucks a week in gas, but then it rains and i am back in commuter duty which i hate so i found a 4x4 perfect for them.


    my daughter and i went for a road trip to get it, itwasmint on the phone and not so mint when we actually seen it.

    she liked it so we got it last friday,shes been matting down my lawn practicing the art of the stick shift all weekend and then i rolled her into the shop for a do over.

    the buggy is a very capable buggy and i cant wait for snow lol

    I saw your thread over on contractor talk about this. My friend in high school had one of these, we used to call it the roller skate. Looks like a cool resto job, looking forward to the finished pics. Good luck!

    Upon further investigation it appears to be a Suzuki X-90.

    haha its cute and capable.

    perfect for what i want it for, my kid will have it a year then go to college, then i figure because it will be me and my wife then, i want to build a tear drop camper that will haul my bike and also be a tent and just go somewhere. then when i am sick of that, i figure a goldwing will haul the camper and i will put a gsxr motor in the x90 and play. but my wife really likes it.

    my first drawing i did was awesome but it was too man influenced, seeing a girl will drive it.

    so i had to scale back a little for her liking, but i still have to be able to drive it lol and i am manly enough to pull it off as my buddy said hahaha he means i am the guy that would pull you out of your car to see what you said . that was in my youth dam it .

    thanks for the comments guys

    my kid loved the eyelashes,lol you can imagine by that time i am breathing paint lol maybe i will try a scuba mask next time lol

    i have an air fed sandblasting hood, but was afraid the mist would just coat the lense.


    the spraying is really the easy part its the taping that will get ya because you have to think about what your doing lol
