Custom Aluminum Hard Top 8x8 (10).JPGCustom Aluminum Hard Top 8x8 (9).JPG
I am looking at building a custom full cab for my Argo Avenger 8x8. I have posted pics of pretty much what I had in mind. I know how to build the frame, my main concern is the windows and doors. I would like to have a fold down windshield if possible, doors with windows on each side, and a door on the rear. I would like to hear/see some of your ideas. What have you done? What would you do different? I cannot weld aluminum, so I was thinking of framing it out of 1x1x1/8 mild steel square tubing. Do you guys think it would be too top heavy or not? I thought about framing up the windshield and doors and bolting lexan to it. A friend of mine on here, BKMAIL, brought up a good point. Lexan scratches easily. I hadn't thought about that. I was thinking more of if a branch hits and shatters my windshield and of the artic conditions cracking my glass. I was also interested in seeing/hearing about gun/bow mounts, baskets, ice chest holders, chain saw holders, etc.. that you guys have or have seen or heard about.
