    Hi I’m Able From suitable hybrid repair. I just picked up another 4 gen 3 Prii to part out. But then i got another idea. One car I got was hit in the back and the other hit in the front both are grey. I want to try making a limousine out of both of them. My goal is to get a 8 passenger car when I’m done. Does anyone have any tips or advice as I start this little project?? Will the frame need reinforcement or can I just weld it? Should i make the middle section of my roof with new metal or use the roof of of one of my Prius v wagons? Also should I make the middle section out of doors I have laying around or start with new metal? Thanks

    Please study all the weirdest Prius mods ever and incorporate them into one... Like the truck element... The Campervan style and make sure you have way too many batteires.

    yeah it definitely needs to be raised with monster wheels... Also make sure to drop the floor once it's raised so you can stand up inside if you're short...

    Ignore the naysayers! I like the idea. It should be safe from any speeding citations.

    (Those were some ugly mishaps in those pics). I'm slowing my speed.

    I’ve about got this thing done. I need the finish some body work still. I drove it down to Florida from Pennsylvania. And that’s where I am right now. 489EE686-A56D-440F-A882-9E880CCF297A.jpeg

    That's pretty cool! What part of Florida? I'd like to see that in person!
    What was your fuel mileage on the way down?
