Lookin' good, Chris. Glad you got some good iron for the bed frame. Maybe you could put a door in that C-Cab to ease getting in and out.

I have to agree. I kind of like the color combination myself.

You should get bored more often. You could fill in the dimensions so I could get the material ordered. :rofl2:

Well, I thought I'd run it by you first. I just made a wild guess on size, you said you were tall. It's 5' tall X 4' wide. Won't be much challenge to make it different. Didn't think that you were making the bed 3' wide. I can shrink it some, add dimensions.

How about this, Chris:

The second is how I laid out the 'C'. Red lines are freehand curves, just whatever looks good here. I didn't give dimensions for the front, that depends on your tractor hood size. Kind of a build to fit area.
Also, if you want a back window, you can use the 'C' layout there, just leave both sides closed in.

I really admire you folks who can do things like that on a computer. I still have to get by with a napkin and pen.
OK here is the situation. There is going to be very little room between the back of the seat and the front of the bed. I would have to cut out the back of the cab for the seat back and if you leaned back your head would be up against the cab. My main concern is ease of mounting and dismounting. With running boards and no cab this should be very easy to do. Except for the fact that you have to lean forward to operate the control valve I would be concerned about the bed rubbing on my back.
I finished the bed today and installed side pockets for the stakes. I ran out of materials for the pivot so hopefully I will have photos of the Dumpster tomorrow with the bed raised.
Had to blow snow today. That was kind of fun. I went to back out of the lean and was looking behind me when a V-belt hanging from the rafter hooked the shoot turning handle and bent the handle straight up. :mecry: Didn't even slow the Simplicity 7117 down. Needless to say all the belts have been moved.

Sounds like great progress today, can't wait to see those pics. I have been thinking about something like this for a while, but never decided what brand, but a Springfield comes to mind lol.

Could you make the back of the cab, the front of the bed, just knowing it will go up? Maybe even pad it for safety?

Wouldn't you only need maybe 1/2"-3/4" between the bed,and the seat?
You gotta do the Ccab.
