Totallly Unique: A Car Window Bed Rail

Can you see how sweet a faux car window I can make out of some weird metal thingy I have no idea what it is I found at Urban Ore for $1, the thin acrylic pane from a 99¢ thrift store poster, and some bolts...

I barely need to describe this part... I cut the acrylic to fit, drilled little holes in it and bolted it to my metal frame thingy...

Now, I want my "car window" to also function as a bed rail, so this sucker has to stay put!

I put an eye lag bolt into the bed side, slipped the metal tube over it and bolted it in place!

Then I drilled 2 holes and bolted (size M6) the side of the metal thingy to the bed.  I don't know what this thing used to be bolted to, but it worked perfect here!

Totally Awesome!
Our "rat rod", vintage auto, toddler-trundle-bed is taking shape!!

I have one more of these weird metal frame thingys -- can anyone see a windshield?
I only feel bad that I don't know where you all can pick up a "some weird metal thingy I have no idea what it is" for yourselves... sorry
