Anyone ever cut a GL wagon in half, close it in, and weld a receiver hitch to it?

If so pics! I'm going to start doing that tomorrow.

Or if anyone has something close to it your welcome to post pics too.

Didn't someone do this to an EA81 wagon? I seem to recall having one at a WCSS a couple years back.

I have frequently thought about cutting the tails out of two GL wagons just ahead of the wheel wells. Butt the open ends together and put a hitch on it. Then you'd have an enclosed trailer with access at both ends.

I have considered cutting my Parts lego off at the firewall and making it into
a bean style trailer with 4 doors and hatch.
But Idk if it'd be worth it.

something with a wagon hatch in front and in back could make a pretty neat tent trailer...

having two hatches would be a neat idea.. but rocks flying up could be an issue.. seeing how its a big sheet of glass and isnt rated for flying objects.

the rear glass is the same temper as the front glass, and it gets flying objects all the time.......just a thought

just use a window shutter like most small trailers have to protect the front window

I like the dual ended hatch idea, that'd be cool
