I got the shovel and shop vac out and cleaned up the inside of the cab that will be the back half of the new cab Monday.

I went from this


To this and filled the canister on the shop vac once.


I'm not sure exactly where I will cut it for the stretch but through the floor in front of the seat looks like the most likely area as it is flat and should be easier to work on and I will build a new transmission cover when I get it together.

My shoulder is still sore most of the time but no broken parts according to the mri so I should start getting some things done on it. I'd like to have the chassis as a roller by October even if all the welding isn't finished. Then I'll go to work on the cab full force.

I did a bit of cutting and pasting with a couple of photos today.
Both photos were borrowed off the net and then I cut the photos in two and did a 9-1/4 (or so) inch stretch in the door and cut it the other way and did a 2-1/2 or 3 inch section.
The First photo is of a truck up in the Wenatchee area and the second one is the Cole Foster truck last owned by Jesse James and for sale on Ebay a few months ago.




I haven't made much progress as I'm still stiff and sore from the last time i banged myself up.
