That is cool! I have been toying with the idea of making one for the Jac 1200. Thanks for putting this on here!

The only thing I am having a hard time locating is the rubber window seals. It is such a common thing I don't know why I can't find it?

Looks like a nice cab. Lots of neat stuff in the magazine. All those cig. ads and 1980 car ads bring back memories. I see one ad for a surplus place with 18hp Onans for 389$. I wonder if they still have any in stock!!

If you look at page 53 you will see where Hydro stole his "idea" for his tire chain installer.
