    $1,200 for a hard-side, heated cab with glass (not plastic) windows is a bargain in my book. I also consider your 150-hours to take the project from sketch to completion very fast. Good job!

    Great job.

    Do you do 'road calls'? I'm only a couple hours away in the mountains.........and the cab I need would be a tad smaller

    Thanks for the positive comments. It was fun to build (but glad it's done) and I'm very happy with the way it came out. So far the only "learning experiences" have been the speckled interior paint and the too-long wiper blade that I mentioned earlier.

    Now if we could just get a couple real snowstorms. We've had plenty of cold but only dustings of snow. We don't average nearly as much as a lot of areas, and the weatherman reported tonight we are way below our normal average.

    Awsome build, Chim. My only regret is that I had some of the latest photos on the build and I can't locate them again to look at in detail. Anyway, I admire your patience, earnestness and dedication in keeping with and finishing the job. You must be very proud, and should be, of the finished project. Cheers John

    I have around 150 hours in it, which is a lot more than I thought it would take.

    True, but in my case and probably a lot of us, we get enjoyment from the projects. I'm retired so everything I do, about 12 hours a day would cost me $7-20 per hour, 7 days s week, if I had to pay myself.
