I was thinking of a simular idea independantly of you, dbisers.

I was thinking of a boattail attaching from a hitch. A few issues block me from persuing this yet, like

1) Not having a hitch on my car (yet?). Hunting around, I can get one for around $200.
2) My idea of a boattail would obscure my rear lights, so I'd have to do some research into trailer / local statutes, and then, wiring diagrams, to splice in the harness to enable lights.
3) Moving in a few months, to return to school. I'd love to have this ready beforehand, but because of the previous two, and finances, I'll delay until I have access to my Dad's workshop (including fibreglass supplies - woo!) in said few months.

Be a pioneer, and show us what can be done with a bike-rack based setup, dbisers!
Current mod: Skidplate/Undertray for my MkIV Jetta. Next mod: CAD drawing for skidplate so other Jetta/Golf drivers can make one too!
