Thanks jen... Ive been tied up in grogs basement,I dont even want to begin telling you the terrible things he made me do, except that he wanted me to build him a special rocket so he could take over the world, but instead I built myself a futuristic robotic suit that flys and escaped...

ANYWAY....nice update on the new buggy - I'm digging your tikification already, although I have a sinking feeling you are far from done! I can't wait to see what you'll do!

You bringing this baby down to long beach in the summer? (or 'pedro?!?!?!)

Hey Kirby! Can't wait to see that banana buggy go!

Are those real floats or plastic? Cause they might explode on impact w/ the windshield.

I have been inspired by the tiki oasis car show to work on the buggy some more here are sum updated picks i took today..see you at oasis..
a few things I added are a bamboo bumper and side runner things a new sturdier bamboo floormats and sum bamboo to hide frame work in the floor.The old bamboo top was not very practical and was hard to remove because it had a shitload of screws holding it on, so I set out to make another one that i could remove easier.. This one only has two screws so thats better, but Im still not happy with it over all so I will probly try one more time at some point, but its fine for now..I also added sum lil dash peices made from bamboo sheet.I would like to add some small tiki masks or tapa ar sumthing like that but im running out of time before oasis..One other thing i did was carve a new gearshift knob..I real loved the skull made by clydsdale but I realy wanted a tiki and I realized i Didnt have any of my art in the car..The las thing i did was modify some mp3 speakers into a Gilligan's island speaker system with coconuts, bamboo and tapa..












and this is my dunebugger pendant chillin on the gas filler
