The front end was always horrible on this buggy when it was operational.
I am either going to chop the front off and re-do the a-arms or chop it off and put a beam front on. Any ideas?

The spot where you have the flat head plug is where it was leaking the oil. I can only imagine how much nit would have leaked if I was at a steep downgrade or something. Looks like a good fix for the ...
