One of the questions that usually comes up in a build thread is cost. So, I thought I would post my costs so far:

Wheels, 4 $31.20
6" Daisy Wheel Vents, 2 $42.00
Expanded Metal, 4'x8' $50.00
Spring Handles, 4 $37.19
2" Square Tube, 14ga, 24' $33.90
4"x 18" Pipe $14.25
20"x42"x3/8" Pipe $61.60
Hinges, 4 $33.00

Total $303.14

I have 1" square tube (for grate), 1.25"x1/8' flat stock (for door edges), 1.5" angle (for shelf), and the drain pipe setup to buy. I am estimating about $500 total cost on this build. Final cost will also depend on how I paint it. I am toying with the idea of letting a local body shop paint it. If so, that will cost much more than a homemade rattle-can job.
