VW powered homemade G

Has anyone ever home built a G type using a VW transaxle & motor? I have the transaxle and motor and keep thinking there's something to be built from it. While I don't anticipate using it for the field I would like to be able to attach a belly mower. Anyone suggestions? My psychiatrist is currently reviewing my meds so be kind.:)

If you need to get your speed down to tractor speeds to your transaxle, put 2 car transmissions back to back. That will give you lots of combinations of gears and it will be slow enough to work like a tractor. That is what was done when they were using old trucks and turning them into a tractor like machine to work in the fields.

I thought i posted this last night. must not have pressed enough buttons. anyway. back in the 70's mother earth news published a series of articles on building a garden tractor with 3pt hydraulics using a vw transaxle with a three speed manual car transmission between it and the engine. i think it would be a good project, keep posting.

all tractors have a "final drive" gear box with about 10 to 1 ratio that drops the ground speed from 80 (for a car) to 8 MPH for a tractor. I dont think a car transmission and axle lends itself to this application.
