    ...and the final picture is with the loader removed.

    I'd be happy to try an answer any questions you may have and pass along any comments to my neighbor.

    Hope you enjoyed the pictorial. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Thats a great looking cab, but what will keep it from frosting up on the inside from breathing in there when it's 5 degrees out?
    does he plan on using some kind of electric defroster?

    Yes. Since the pictures were taken he has installed a small electric heater on the ceiling that blows down the front windshield. The BX is designed with the engine mounted in reverse. The cooling fan draws in air through a screen below the steering wheel, in front of the operators legs.

    With the cab mounted there is a nice flow of fresh air that gets drawn through the crevices....which I think will aid in keeping the windows clear in the winter.

    Wow that's a GREAT job of building!

    All that BX needs is a rooftop Air Conditioner and a mini-frig and one could live there in the summer months as well.................

    Easy to tell this was built by a true craftsman.

    This is an incredible cab. Cudos goes out to your neighbor.

    THe only thing Iwould change would be lower the front lights so that they are below the cab roof line and add a rear light.

    Other than the mandetory beverage holder and Satellite radio receiver , he's all set.

    Very cool.
