Toxophilite posted a topic in Modifications and Performance: 450 Model, 2005-2006, dieselI'd like to get on making a DIY trailer hitch for my 2005 smart cdi fortwo. I was going to remove the rear crash bar and replace it with a 2' x 2' 1/8" thick square steel tube with a 1.25' receiver welded on bottom. Then cut a corresponding hole cut in the valance. A few people recommended this approach. My brother is a pro welder so that's not a problem. It sounded straight forward but looking at the crash bar I see I need to weld a couple of plates to the back and drill some holes (which I can do no problem) to mount it properly Is this what people are doing? Does anyone know the bolt pattern or have a diagram? I'll likely pick up a T45 torx in the next couple of days and try to remove it and then I can trace it all out but I thought I'd ask. Another one I saw the fellow seems to have mounted his tow bar outside the body using the two towing hook points and he was towing some big stuff. Anybody try that approach?
What a gas! A smartcar passed me on the highway with what looked like a single wheel trailer at the back. As i tried to speed up to get a closer look this guy flew off like he had a six pack in it. Has anyone seen this or was i hallucinating?
