My cousin bought this cab for his Kubota a few years ago ,it came with one soft door on the left side and just a snap in piece on the right side. . He's asked me to make him some better doors. I started by fabricating hinges to match the one's on the left side. I had to make a piece to close in the upper part of the cab to beable to make the top of the door have a place to close against. I also had to make a piece of steel close in around the loader control. His loader control has been mounted onto the tractor now instead of always staying on the loader.He also wanted me to make a bucket level indicator for his just like the one I have made for mine. Here's some pics so far of what I've started doing.

Made the other part of the hinge and started making the door frames.Have both side's made to this point today. Lot's of bending and tweeking to get them just right.Still have the bottom piece to make and weld in place.

Are you planning on using plexi, Lexan, or glass?

Going to be lexan mounted in rubber thats why I didn't have to be to fussy in keeping the glass mounting area as flat and square as possible.

Finished the doors today. The cost of all the material's etc. comes to $520 not including the labour. Had to buy a whole sheet of the Lexan. [they won't sell it otherwise]  Only needed a 48" x 54" piece.

Very nice job on the doors,  they should keep the black flies out... or in!   Looks good, thanks for posting.
