anything your building to go along with your passat. mine is for my daughters birthday, but it will go to the car shows the passat is in.




its got a full frame, tail pipes, and wheelchair wheels. it supports (tested) 300 pounds and rolls with one finger.



what do you all got going on?

Nice job, but I think it could do with more bolts - you have enough in those cans in the background ;)
im a big fan of not going to the hardware store. ill tear something apart and keep the good bolts. the only thing i bought for this project was the cold rolled steel for the rear axle. all tubing is 4 side welded. i think it should do 400 pounds with little issue. it is now rhino lined inside the tub, and has a nice hand built pillow inside, ill update pictures when i can. hard to do while hiding it from the kids for my oldest s birthday. im going to add a faux shifter knob off the right side and some custom side rails.

lol turnbuckles. once I had it dialed in I welded it solid. It looks slightly different now, I made a quick release handle for it. just a simple knurled pin with a cotter pin. that way it can lay in the trunk and barely take up space. the bottom got reinforced.
thanks though. they are a ton of fun to pull the kids in. people love seeing them.

if you look at the second picture from the bottom, you will see that it adjusts in the middle for length, but you could also adjust the ends independently. if i build another it WONT be that complicated.

Yours is way cooler because you built it yourself, but I never can resist a chance to show off my grandson. :)

You have given me a great idea for when Henry is a bit older.
