Thanks deadbodyman, i really appreciate that.......Okay, i moved the line on my cab ahead 6" inches so that i am far away from the curve of the cab. Then i took 2 pieced of angle iron and welded them level off of the bottom inside of the cab up to the roof. I cut a 1/2" off of the angle iron and then i torched a couple pieces of flat metal with the curve of the current roof line. Hopefully this will allow me to set the 2 pieces back in place. It's pretty sturdy so i am comfortable that the 2 sections will go back together pretty easy.
