Hi, I got a curtis cab model 130286. I'm having a hard time to figure out just how to install the lower front part of the cab onto the floor boards. I see two studs that go from the floor board through the frame to hold it on. The cab has two holes that align with those studs. I see no way of removing those studs to allow me to bolt the lower cab in place. Has anyone ever seen this before? I attached a few pictures of this. I'm hoping to call curtis and see if they may have an installation manual that I could purchase. Thank you for any ideas.

I've got 3 of them but haven't put any of them on yet. Two are for GTs and one is for my Ford 2000. They come up for sale a couple times per year around here. Let us know what you learn. Good Luck, Rick

I did not see any studs in the photos.  Are those round spots on the floor board under the cab frame knock outs?  Partially stamped holes you knock out with a hammer and cold chisel?  Then bolt the cab down using those holes?

So the 'studs' are those flat things that look like knockouts. I decided to simply grind them off, the studs fell onto the garage floor leaving just the nice 5/6" holes to mount my cab onto. It worked out great. Here's a few pictures. Now this is a Curtis model 130286 low profile hard cab. I am in search of doors hard or soft. So far no luck Curtis no longer makes them nor do they have any in stock. I may be on my own to fabricate doors. Has anyone ever made doors for theirs?

How did you make out? That cab looks real good on that tractor. If worse comes to worse you can make the doors out of sheet metal or ply wood. Using 1/2" EMT with a plastic cover will work too. Be sure there are no exhaust leaks. Good Luck, Rick
