John, I maybe interested in the steering wheel as mine didn't fair out to well. As for the "hide-em" strip around the top of the roof, the original was a metal track that was nailed..yes nailed to the inner wood frame, then there was a "C" shaped piece of metal trim that interlocked with the metal track. Thus sealing the roof trim and hiding the nails at the same time.

The only problem is that this is a one shot deal, so now a days every body is using the old vinyl body trim like that of the seventies and eighties cars. Lay down a piece of aluminum track that has a colored trim piece in lay.

Tom, thanks! I am working on a suprise photo that I think you guys will get a kick out of. :wink:

Stretch, You're getting ahead of me!! At least you got the door/windshield posts out. I think they are attached with carriage bolts and the wood rots around then and there's no getting them out! What did you find with those??

Emery, note in my photo that i tipped the cab on it's back.
I was able to get to the bottom six carriage bolts (three per side). I then finished removing all the rest of the nails, carefully pryed back the sheet metal and the front cowl slipped off around the front posts without any real trouble. ( i have to admit...i was amazed myself :oops: )
Like I said it was easier with the cab laying on it's back.

Spent a couple of nights doing some more disassembly of the cab. Not much left now.

I'm glad I went the extra mile on complete tear down as the wood was in worse shape than I originally thought, so it will get all new.
The more complex pieces are already done, the rest can be done by me or my brothers, the wood is straight ash boards. I will onlt need a scroll saw and some datto blades to make overlap joints.

Some more photos of rear cab corner structure.

I tried to remove the screws but I found that the screws were in such poor condition that with "Gentle pulling" I could pull the screws out.

Those that didn't come out so well, I used a cutting wheel and sliced down throught the screw head to use a screwdriver on. The others I cut carefully in pieces to break off the screw heads , pulled the boards apart, then used a vise grip to get the rest out.

I will save all the old stuff for patterns for others to use.
