R2-VW: a microbus transformed into a droid tribute


Instructables contributor mimaki cg60 dressed up his VW bus like R2-D2.

From Instructables:

It all began when we looked at the family's old-looking VW bus and started wondering how to transform it. The first idea was to transform it into a woody-vw bus, but after a Star Wars marathon, we finally found the droid we were looking for.

We decided to recreate all the objects on R2D2 and adapt them to fit the bus. All the measurements and computer work took about 50 hours, plus vinyl wrapping till we lost count.
