During my test fitting I had a hard time trying to bolt the cross piece in. On closer inspection I found that the front side of the cross brace was hitting the cowl, so I ground it down a little and it fits well.

The next thing I discovered was that the wood jam hinges are different. I tried to use the wood jam hinges and when I test fitted the doors and they were rubbing the cab. After sleeping on it I was going to file the holes to allow the hinges to slide outward. The next day I compared the wood jam to the steel jam hinges and guess what they are different. The steel oneís holes are just what I needed to clear the cab.

There are little L shaped brackets welded to the jams. There is a very simmilar bracket rivited to the cab (This is where the wood jams are bolted at the bottom.) I found the existing bracket very much in tact so I removed the bracket from the steel jams.
