Homemade sidecar bodies

I am building a sidecar for my xs400/xt350 bike and I need ideas for construction of the tub. I have done extensive searching but can really only find info on frame construction and utility carts. I need some pictures/inspiration for small homemade passenger car bodies. Any info would be great, thanks!

Millennium, I built my sidecar body of 3/16 birch plywood. I don't know the technique of posting on a forum but I can e-mail some pix if you're interested.

if you are handly with wood and have patience google 'cedar strip canoe'. This technique has been applied to make some very nice looking sidecar bodies. Use your imagination! I am sorry that I can't locate pictures. Or click here: http://www.pdxtex.com/canoe/canoe.htm

I saw this at Intermot in Cologne, if you're into kayaking this might work for you.

I don't know if the pics will help or not but mine converts from a passenger body to a camping box.
