    Looks like a landrover without the dents....

    I have tossed around a similar idea, but using 1/8" thick diamondplate aluminum.
    Construction would be similar to a panel van.

    Definitely Landrover inspired bodywork rather than Hummer in my view

    Whatever happened to that little "Ibec" or "Ibex" or whatever it was called ?
    IIRC came from your side of the pond.

    What a conundrum- do we leave early and come back to finish tomorrow? Or do we rip a few more sheets of plywood and risk not having enough juice.

    I bet you could run that little table saw all week on the vehicle drive battery and not notice the difference.

    An interesting design. I like the use of flat panels.
    If one considers the simplicity of an electric car (and motor) vs gas or diesel, those should be considerably less expensive.

    yeah, you'd hope so....I think the battery has something to say about cost...


    I would have been a lot more impressed if after folding down the seats, a saw blade popped up in the middle of the deck.


    and what were those two dudes doing out in a field by themselves playing with their tools?

    ...and maybe a damsel-in-distress tied up and pulled slowly toward the blade....
