Reviews - What do customers think about Building a Dune Buggy: The Essential Manual?

Could do with a few more options.  Jan 11, 2007
A well thought out and informative book. My only fault with it would be that it is very specific to the style of dune buggy that the author builds. My own research has revealed there are lots of different paths to take in building a dune buggy (not to mention baja bugs, all terain buggys, etc). A chapter covering these styles and where to find information on them would be a nice touch.

Lots of great tips and tricks and how to avoid mistakes makes it very true to its title. Has left me very satisfied with my purchase.
Worth Having  Jan 9, 2007
Good book. Goes into heavy detail on how to shorten the pan. But doesnt cover every area as well. Chapter on tools could have been left out, chances are if your going to build a buggy you already have the basic tools. I already built a buggy (prior to purchasing this book) so most of the information I already knew. Good book to have just for the pan shortening info. I welcome any new books written on the dunebuggy subject. Written in UK english.
Building a Dune Buggy: The Essential Manual  Jan 9, 2007
Somes chapters of book aren`t focused in specifics dune buggy matters, but general car matters, like tools, safety and brakes. The best part is the chapter chassis shortening methods, very detailed; I felt a lack of information about the dune buggy body, like a shell plan or a path to build it, but if you don`t known anything about buggy building, this book can be a good start.
