  • Crazy Idea

    I bought a 1988 Festiva turns out the back end is rusted out. Maybe this is a crazy idea, but I was thinking about chopping off the end and making a wooden stake bed? Turn it into a tiny truck?

    This would be my first time ever modifying a car, but I'm excited to give it a go. I've seen several like I added a picture of with the roof cut off and the hatch modified. But nothing with completely removing the back end.

    Any tips, tricks advice is gladly accepted.

    There is a video from mighty car mods where they turned a Subaru into a truck like that, you could take some ideas from that video, should be really easy to find just type like “Subayute Mighty car Mods” or something like that. Gotta be careful, the roof is a major structural point in any car

        Something similar has been done by cutting away the upper rear quarter behind the front seats, ie removing the the side windows back, but that retained the floor and rear suspension. As mentioned above these are unit body construction, like a box, not body on frame, so cutting into the floor may be structurally unstable. When I bought my Festiva I removed the back seat turning it inot a sort of small van and have made good use of the extra space.
