Someone was asking about cost. Well start with a 1977 argo. I'm not sure what the cost was on that but this is what went into it

30' of 1" Square Steel tubing $1.85/ft
4 sheets inf 5/8th plywood $28 each
Primer, Paint, etc approx $100
1 4x8 sheet of heavy duty screen $50
Misc hardware (handles latches, screws, bolts, etc.) approx $100
8 new Tires $50 each
putting the tires on the rims $10 each
Carb cleaning and rebuild $$ unknown

Plus your gonna needa Mig Welder and some heavy duty tools to use self tapping screws into hardened steel, a drill press came in handy too. And to top it all off it took about 80 to 90 man-hours of labour and a few beers to get it all together. but very worth while...

Check the Gallery HERE to see how it all went together.
