Car Struts, Tube Frame - 4x4 Off-Road UTV Project Ep.7

Continuing the work on the tube frame. Customizing new car struts of the Peugeot Partner to fit the lighter Volkswagen Golf 1 rear axle springs on them. Starting work on the roof structure / roll bar of the UTV. Utilizing old parts such as the cargo hull framed divider wire mesh as a divider on the UTV as well. Realizing that the new shock absorbers are a bit taller than the older ones and that it requires a light redo on the tube frame as well.
This is part of a series of a four wheel drive utility vehicle build to lessen the work load on my trusty 2002 Honda Foreman Rubicon TRX500FA. This partially answers the question "Why?" but for those who want to ask "why don't you just buy a side-by-side instead of building one?" I just want to say - I'm not made of money. Side-by-sides are ridiculously expensive, even the car I drive around daily is worth less (not worthless though!), hell, it is even worth less than my 2002 Honda ATV.
"How much HP will it have?" - the 1.4 litre FWD petrol engine I'm planning on using has 55 kw and this will not change, but the torque will be tripled via the BMW differentials I'm using to transfer power to front and rear axles.
"It will be too heavy!" - this project just like the firewood processor project does not have to float. And a heavier vehicle will handle better anyway when hauling heavy loads.
Stay tuned for future episodes! Thanks for watching!

      What is your planning phase like? Do you do any sketches, drawings or you just free hand it while building? It would be nice to have just still frame on idea of what you are going for and interesting to see how that chances over time. Rok Adamlje Side ways works too, but sometimes we forget the easiest solution and keep hitting our heads into wall, thats why its important to take step back and look problem from another angle.

      I know what you mean but I want to keep it as narrow as I can for all sort of reasons - fitment through the workshop doors; fitment on the trailer I have; fitment between the trees in the forest without having to cut in new wider trails etc. I've done most of the jobs around the household using my ATV, now this UTV will be its successor and has to fit where the ATV did. 😉

    I'm not bashing you this is your project but just for suggestion I'd lay the frame out differently. If your putting a body your going to want a longer frame. Push the rear axle back to support the body to. The drive train will be different but it'll work better.

      The struts already have it. The shock is offset from the center of the wheel hub towards the rear end thus giving the wheels the trailing they need.

    "cargo hull framed divider" My best guess this will be part of the dump box... As you were building it I was thinking that you were going to weld that to the frame, then I read the description and It kinda makes me think that it will be part of the box. So far this is looking really good. I want to make a 2 wheel drive one with a 3 cylinder geo metro... Lightweight and front wheel drive.. Would make for a very nice little fast cart.

    Next time, use a bit of string to pull the strut rod sideways while you feed the components on to it. It will save you a lot of grief! Seems odd that they won't support the weight of the rod. Are they supposed to be unpressurised? Fitting them in a car must be a nightmare.
