I cut away all the rear unibody up to the gas tank and strut towers.
Then I added some tubular space frame style reinforcement.
Each rear door weighed 80lbs.

Oh, I added a rear carbon fiber bumper. No really, I did. It is a re-purposed
snow board from the local thrift store that cost me $7.50. also, if I ever get caught in the snow, I will have a ride home. This civruck is totally functional and street legal,
licensed, smogged, registered and insured.

I love the name! I had an '86 Toyota Cressida that I kept threatening to turn into a pickup. I might have done it, too, had just one person ever not laughed when I said "El Cressido."

I love your flat deck car/truck it must be getting some good mileage missing 500 lbs,I bet she is also extra zippy .
Good job and ha ha you can ski out if needed, desperate times require desperate measures..
Post up a photo of your new bumper if you get a chance.
Neat.

I've seen a couple of well done Metro trucks, and a converted Ford Festiva (in my neighborhood) that look fun...
