make a trailer-tent, bike transporter or trailer from a 100E

Here you see my first sketch of the idea. There are lots of 100Es on ebay in close to scrap condition, selling for around £200. I got my BBQ one for free and the one I now drive, originally cost only £461 (though it is worth a lot more now that I have replaced lots of parts etc, in case my insurer is reading!)

So, cutting up a 100E body can easily be justified.

Remove everything hatched in red, keeping the roof for panels. Gaiter the wheel arch, as the rear wheel will do the work.

I showed the idea to my metal guru, Iain MacKenzie at Fairmile Restorations and he said, "It has got to be done", so I reckon this has to be the project to succeed the 101.
