  1. SOLD. I have for sale a custom made cargo box for the rear of a smart 450. It consists of 2 custom machined posts that screw into the 2 rear tow points on the car. the posts attach to a flat platform with a cargo box on top of it. The box can be removed if you want and a different box could be used or however you want to modify it. Here is a link to my original post about it. http://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?showtopic=22583&hl=%2Bcustom+%2Bcargo+%2Bbox $50 plus shipping.
  2. SOLD. I have a smart 450 pure that is being turned into parts. The poor old girl is in rough shape but is going to contribute to the continued life of her fellow smarts. All the glass is intact(although the windshield is what you would expect from a 10 year old car) Rear glass has lettering on it. 2 front winter tires in good shape. 1 brand new all season tire on steel rim. (rear) 4 summer tires on steel rims. 3 winter tires in fair condition on steel rims. Doors, rear lower panel, rear door panel and front right fender panels are all available( in red). Door panels have lettering on them. Entire interior is available. lights and lighting assemblies. Assorted engine parts are available. However, engine itself is gasping its last. Make me an offer. If you are not sure if I have a part available just ask. If you want to email me directly, instead of posting here, famouserik@gmail.com

  4. I like the idea. I went with a different idea using the tow hook attachments in the rear. http://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?showtopi...mp;#entry272191 I have since added a plastic utility box that can enclose anything I am hauling. Just had to make sure it was low enough that it doesn't block the licence plate.
  5. I am located in Northwestern Ontario and can make arrangements for delivery to Manitoba and NW Ontario. I will happily ship elsewhere, but probably not the glass.I have the following parts available:(any panels are black)Rear light assembliesleft and right door panels, left front panel, left and right rear panels, rear door panel.floor matsengine coverwheel well styrofoamwindshieldroof glass5 spoke rim and tireair conditioner pumppassenger dash air bagMake me an offer.I'll give you a hell of a deal on the whole lot.PM me or email famouserik@gmail.com

  7. I have the exact same 3 bars problem in heavy wet weather. It goes away fast so I have never bothered to deal with it...yet
  8. I should be able to hook you up. I emailed you.
  9. That looks awesome. I went in a different direction. http://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?showtopi...mp;#entry272191 I have a question for you. Are you driving a 450? If so, where did you get your trailer hitch?
  10. I look forward to seeing how the challenge goes! Drop me a line when you are passing through NW Ontario, and I can hook you up with a room and meal.
  11. I would totally be interested in the cover. I am however, located in Ontario. I have an assortment of 450 parts if you are in need of anything. ( from a parts car that I took the engine from)Famous Erik
  12. I have had the same troubles with the 3 bars and sloppy weather. I also causes my check engine light to come on. However, everything runs normal and it goes away shortly after getting out of the slop.
  13. Took the deck for a few days test drive and then took it off until I need it in January. Works great, but I will be tweeking the towing bolt securing. One of them loosened up a tiny bit and it lets the deck potential jiggle a bit when empty. I will be revising the way the little bungie cords keep the bolts tight.
  14. I came up with a cheap and easy, and very sturdy cargo deck for my smart. And it doesn't use a trailer hitch to attach a fancy expensive deck.This is just my Beta version. I may change out some of the parts in the spring after I see how it performs and how I want to tweek it.1) Have 2 custom towing hitch bars fabricated. With a small hole through the non-screw end. ( I was unable to locate anywhere that carried a bar with the same threads as the tow hook)2) Cut out a deck. I used a thick chipboard that I already had laying around.3) Drill holes parallel to the bars for 2 U-bolts on each side. The U bolts, when tightened, keep the deck in place and the top of the U bolt is the attachment point for your bungie or cargo net.4) Place a spacer( I used a rubber gasket-type piece) on the car end of the tow bolt to prevent the deck from moving to close to the rear panel of the car and possibly rubbing against it.5) Bolt it in place with the U bolts.6) Place a piece of wire or small bungie cord into the drilled hole on the end of the tow bolt to prevent it from loosening. (If it starts to turn, the wire will contact the bottom of the deck and prevent it from turning too far)The whole project only took about an hour and a half when I exclude paint drying time.The Tow bolts.The competed deck. I hope the picture gives a clear idea of where everything is.
  15. thanks guys. I'll have a look before the snow comes.
