Hey Brian, I know you're mocking up the cab on the frame, but do you expect it will sit the same way once installed on its mounts? Meaning that it sits just right the way you're showing it in the pictures. The cab to wheel gap looks good.

Here is a pic of how it sits now Robert. I have one hinge installed and the cab is resting on the intake pipe. I shaved down the pipe to help it set correctly but it needs to be shaved down a little more. I also mounted the grill 1/16 lower to help raise the cab a little.

Very nice! What have you planned for the door handles and the grab rails? Are you using the kit parts or updating with newer items similar to the parts on the Aerodynes?

I like the second bumper, too. It's period correct, and perfect for an owner-operator look.
