Dumpster Car...

Recommended Posts

I had some parts that I didn't know what to do, I didn't like to trash them, because for sure after I will need them. The other day I ran into a picture on the web about a car made using a dumpster.

So I want o make it, I think it should be fun and also to have a break from other projects... :)

I decided to use the postal Jeep chassis, or at least part of it.

Next I add the front from another part chassis I had, and radiator from a Jeepster, the rear axle I have not idea..10593223_821997037835011_794243771972084

Fenders from a Jeepster.

Fabrizio, what a great start on another eclectic adventure. When you say the body is paper, would that be some sort of card stock? What do you use to glue it together, white PVA school glue? Thanks for posting another fascinating project.

Thank yo Bill! I call it paper, but is thin cardboard, this one is from a USP envelope, the A4 size. I use Super glue to glue all together. :)

The engine is a Dauntless 225 V6, based on the Buick and is from the Jeepster kit.

I guess if this vehicle were totaled in an acident all of the scattered parts could simply be loaded into the center of the contaner and simply be taken directly to the recycling center?
