I made a travel-friendly chess set. Did about 20 pages of documentation with regards to which my teacher ripped up. got an A* in the exam which bumped me up from a F to a C :(
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

Sounds like your D&T teachers were as arrogant as mine. Twats.

I mean, I can use my car to kill deer, but that doesn't mean it'll hold up for long if I start using it as an industrial deer killing machine...

Depends on what modifications you make to it.

Yup, something along the lines of: "GIANT FUCKING PENIS ON MY FOREHEAD BECAUSE I KNOW WOODWORK OMGOMGOMGOMGWTFBBQ I HAX LLOLZ!!2£!"

I myself find the metal spikes attached to the grill quite effective.

A typical amateur's mistake. Before adding weapons, you always need to improve chassis integrity. One good way is to add a shock proof frame to the original framework.
The metal spikes are not what makes it an effective killing machine. The metal spikes are simply there to make it more fun for the whole family.

Do not forget the drivers cage. It should be heavily reinforced along the front window, and also you probably want a steel mesh over the front window.

Is kind of what I meant when I wrote this:

shock proof frame

but I hear ya man. After that is gone, bring on the full-automatic grenade launchers.

Very true, Torp. It's so frustrating when a chunk of muscle from your kill is torn off and flies through your windscreen.

Also with regards to the chassis; beat this:
