Looks like your moving right along,  Going to be interesting to see the end result.

 

Do you mean a good "interesting" or a bad "Interesting"  :poke:  :smilewink:

I've been doing lots of welding, which isn't much fun to post pictures of, although we got the door handle installed, we still need to do a little work to it, but it closes and latches.

Doors are the biggest pain to make of the whole build.

Today I got the front window frame hinged on, also got one window opener thingy made, I didn't have the right bolts as you can tell in the pictures, but when I get the correct bolts tomorrow, it should work just fine,  now I just need to make 4 more :(

I like your door handle! Should be easy to replace if needed!

Looking good.Until you build one you have no idea as to all the time and work that's involved, from start to finish.

Did some more work on the window latch, I got the right sized bolts and did a little "tweaking". It now opens, closes and latches with no problems. I put on a long bolt in the middle of the hinge with a piece of 3/8 fuel line over it for comfort. I started on the one for the back window, but I haven't finished with it yet. Hoping to have it done tomorrow and the I will start on the one for the windshield.

I started out today by building a plate and welding in pipe for the hydraulic quick couplers. I got them finished up and looking pretty good, I also started getting my hydraulic hoses sorted out and I now know what I need to buy. I then got a real handle on things :poke: and I built a handle on the door and a handle between the door and windshield. I still need to build a couple more handles inside the cab, but I am happy with it so far.

looking good. Seeing that the leaves are still green you have some time left before it snows.

It hasn't frosted here yet, we should still have some time before it gets cold. The 10 day forecast says our highs are in the 60's so I'm still hoping the weather will hold.

Haven't been doing very exciting things with the cab, I got the top half removed so I can finish welding and then prepare for paint. Also going to do a little welding on the bottom half and get it ready to paint. Still need to do a little work on window frames but I'm getting closer. I spent today messing with hydraulic hoses, I'm trying to get them all sorted out so I can get new ends put on them. I hope one of these days this cab will be finished :(

You know this is where the old saying between the Tortise and Hare . Slow but steady wins the race.

LOTS of pictures this time!

 

Today my brother came over and we played around with mineral spirits and silicone and we stuck a couple small pieces of glass together for "safety glass" test pieces. We thought it would be best to make up a couple small pieces of safety glass before we start on the full sized windows. I'm still not 100% sure that this will work??? We used 1 part silicone and 1 1/2 part mineral spirits and mixed it together. We then spread it out on the glass and then laid the second piece of glass on top. It looks good so far, but we will let it sit for a few days before we smash it with a hammer OH, UMMMM  I mean "test it"

 

We also started cutting plywood for the fenders and lower half of the door. Nothing is bolted down yet, but it is looking pretty good. Once it's all cut out I'm going to start painting. The top half of the cab is put on hold for right now. Now I just need the tractor for a backhoe job (installing a no freeze faucet)
