This set of plans is made for 1½ (38mm) outside diametre tubing. Please make sure you will use this tube dimensions, if you dont do this, the template system to cut the notches will not work. The plans were designed for use with 6″CLR tubing bender die (you coud also use 5″ but it will not fit as good). All dimensions are in metric. It is advised to use DOM tubing, with a minimal wall thickness of 2mm (0.083 inch). You will need approximately 50 metres of tubing. You will need atleast: welder,tube bender, angle grinder, drill press, paper printer, There is no need for a tube notcher.
The sheet metal parts can be made by hand using the one to one paper printouts. You can also buy the cutting files (DXF format) off the website and cut them using a cnc plasma cutter. Advised sheet metal thickness is 4mm.

The plans will only get you as far as a frame with suspension. You will have to mount the engine and install the rest without the plans, using the video series as a guide. For more info go to the cheetah buggy section and read the Cheetah buggy reader.
