Looking good Allen! Glad I could help with the cab. I wish I could help Pat out. He needs sheetmetal for his 67, and I've got enough I'd give him, but he's just to far away.....

Got the glass out of the old cab, so it will be off to recycle. Got the windshield wipers in the new cab and rebiult the heater. Diane has been painting all the parts that are going back on,looking good. Painter has the fenders, should be back today along with the dash. I will get more pictures as I get the parts.
