Hats off to the gentleman who did this conversion back in 1974, some 42 years ago! It may not be the prettiest thing, but it surely shows very high skills of metal work and imagination and above all, the desire AND ability to go all the way with an idea. Must have been quite a sight back in 1974, the same year Brads 20' Argosy just rolled off the assembly line.

It sure seems to have withstood time a lot better than mind did

Very true.
I agree, I take back what I said, that does take a lot of talent and I'm still learning the tiniest, easiest little fixes.

It's one of those cases where beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I don't personally care for the look but I can appreciate the effort that was put into it.

I'm really curious as to what vehicle the windshields were originally made for. That had to take some effort to get the aluminum frame to mate with the glass.

OK, I'll accept the term "UNIQUE", but a forced marriage....maybe arranged. Regards, Bob

I heard the guy built that after he had to replace the power steering pump belt on a 345 in August at rush hour on IH20 outside of Houston, with his wife and kids inside and the generator not wanting to start.
Just kidding guys....
