i used an old cylinder as a water bottle holder that can sit on floor of my bug. got as much rust off as i could, painted it gloss black, turn it upside down and sit it on the floor and drop a 1.5 liter bottle of water in it. next try is freezing the cylinder and see how long it will keep the bottle cold

a little stupid i know but i was bored and didnt want to throw it away

I recently discovered Instructables and I "favorited" that Instructable just last week:-) Am going to a show this weekend and am planning to look for a tail light or two to do something similar. Great idea.

Anybody else repurpose their spare VW parts in a fun way?
