Today i finished welding up the back of the cab around the window glass and along the bottom. With that done, i moved up to the top of the cab section. What i did here was take the 4" corner pieces i cut out of the cab when i first started this chop. I cleaned them up and placed them into the curve of the cab towards the center. On each side of the cab, i set sheetmetal screws in to the cab top and the pieces i placed under the cab. On the drivers side, i did have to place a 4" pie cut do to the cab being stood on once upon a time and denting the top fairly good. Here are todays pics:
