think ahead a step, to be sure you won't run into exhaust pipes/downshift linkage/etc interference....

there is alot of radiant engine and pipes btu's heat that wants to come up thru that big panel into the cab.....
I'd consider making a good part of it a double wall with a open air gap to keep the heat out of the cab....

1/2" to the reflector panel and 1/4-1/2" gap from that to the cab panel is more than plenty good for reflecting/losing 90% of the heat (same as a steel fireplace metal chimney construction)
