well, Redcap came over to visit me today and helped me start my trailer project..

after Aaron got his fill of spare parts we cleaned it out till it was a shell.

We start by cutting the car in half.

Neat project.

I saw something similar made out of an early 80's tercel hatchback, the other day.

I'm not sure what your intentions are, as far as hauling, but i would seal it off about 6 inches from the wheel well.
Would be a perfect size for camping stuffs, firewood, etc., without being too long.
