YES BEEN DOODLING SINCE A LOT OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED.

SO!
I PAINTED THE RACK, BUMPER, MIRROR AND TWO NEW WORK LIGHTS SO THEY WOULD BLEND IN.. ALSO ADDED TWO ADJUSTABLE GUN GRIPS / SHOVEL OR? FISHING POLE, OF COURSE IT IS THAT SHORT!
AND THAT PAINT JOB... MAINLY TWO COLORS SPRAYED THROUGH PINE NEEDLE BOW THEN TOPPED OFF WITH DESERT BISQUE WHICH IS SEMI-TRANSPARENT FLAT AND GRITTY SO A FEW PASSES AND THINGS DON'T SHINE OR LOOK AS HARSH ANYMORE! I LOVE THAT PAINT (X2 RUSTOLEUM). THOSE DRY AND STICK GOOD + ON THE BISQUE IT IS GOOD AT STICKING TO PLASTICS, USE FOR UNDERCOAT THEN COLOR.
FORGOT THAT MIRROR, TOMORROW - PINE NEEDLES FOR SURE!

ARGO-SPRING'S LAND LUBBER FISHING MACHINE = STATUS Argo-s10

Last paint update. Side vent screen and kolpin arms / tool holders.
Working on getting an extra cooling fan in for hot summers, will also cool the brakes used for steering and extend life plus push hot air out.
Will add a open/close firewall vent for winter heating to keep legs warm.
In the background is the 2001 Honda Rancher, best work horse literally, tow big logs, move full size trailers, plow snow and go up-down very scary trails. It is full time 4 wheel drive so only goes about 26 top speed. Matches the Argo in mileage and speed.

Due to that surgery, I'm limited to type of work projects.. so things move along at snails pace wit coffee breaks an such.

I just finished a modification for the steering & e-brake cooling for those hot days and high usage in some extreme terrains. It was a ducted fan blowing fresh air through a housing that directs to both sides of the two disks. Currently runs with ignition switch but get a temp switch.

A One Day job took 4 FULL days! 

Some new jobs planned to improve for long trips, some creature comfort & safety for smaller grand children, 
and a few mods for better rear storage and hand grips.

No end to outfit and prep off road vehicles for reliability & usefulness.

Also added a modified hitch lock to the winch to prevent theft.
