Let me bounce this off the group. Been thinking about cutting and flanging the mid gate at the single seat mark. Was at the Home Depot with my 2 sons and realizied that the 10 foot mouldings I was carrying would have to hang out. So I thought hmmm. If I cut the midgate dutch door style and provide an overlap to retain the original latching mechanism. Plus about a case of silicon sealant and some creative welding I could have the split foldown that would allow me to carry people and cargo just like a Jetta. I am actively looking at this in addition to propositioning the general. Let me know if you think. I kind of feel like with this really brite group we have had this idea before, or at least dreamed about it. Let me know...
