A few issues back Make did a feature on making changes to one’s vehicle. I’d like to share something similar that’s in the spirit of Make–making vehicles accessible for the disabled. A whole lotta creative engineering is involved, and every job is a custom one, fit specifically for that person’s needs.

Recently, I got my truck finished up after a nine month process of bureaucracy, paperwork, fittings, brainstorming, training, debugging and more brainstorming. Since each job is custom, I had a door panel modified, the factory console ripped out and a fab’ed new one put in place, a longer sliding lock for where I need to lock down. That’s the short of it, really.
