I ran out of box metal today, the local hardware had to order some and it won't be in till the middle of next week :(. But I guess it will give me time to do some more work on some of the braces and ect. I got to measuring and it's going to take 78 feet of box to make the window frames and door, I guess I should of figured out how much metal it was going to take when I started :reading_the_manual: . I guess it takes more metal then you would think to make a bunch of squares  :wallbanging:.

Anyway, I thought I'd splurge and buy it since I've already started and I need my tractor for the garden  :deadhorse: .

I will get some pictures tomorrow around noon and get them posted up, :camera:

(I must be in a smilly face mood :rocker2: :thumbs: :smilewink: :D)

Now it's beginning to look like a cab! Will the door lap over the opening?

The door is going inside the frame, I am going to weld in a 1" wide strapping around the inside of the door frame (and window frames) for them to shut against. I will put a seal on the strapping so the windows will close nice and tight, I also don't want anything rattling.

Today I got the top half of the cab bolted down, it took a while getting all the holes drilled, I bought a new bit but it was dull after a couple holes. I also got the loader valve mounted inside the cab, I now need to get the quick couplers mounted into the front of the cab.

I forgot the camera again :( , but I didn't have much to take pictures of, I got one more window frame finished, it was pretty easy because it's a non opening window. Also got a mistake around the door fixed and I did a lot more grinding. I will get pictures tomorrow, I will also be getting in my box metal tomorrow so I can start on the windows and door. (can't wait) :rocker2:

Got more work done on the door today, I got the 1 inch strapping welded just about around the whole door, only have approx another foot to weld on but it was getting late and I called it quits.

 

I should have the door done on Saturday, then I need to start on more window frames.
