One side window installed.

At least you are building a proper size door. The "HardCab", and the prototype cab I have seen from "On The Rox", have pretty small door. I couldn't imagine getting in and out of them in bulky winter cloths, especially the "HardCab" with the latch sticking out hip high. The OTR cab I have seen has the smallest door and with the window as far forward as it is, it seems to create a pretty big blind spot. I think on those you would have to lean forward to see out of it good. I like your door size better.

This is the inside view of the OTR prototype cab. To me that is a huge blind spot and small door. The cab looks well built otherwise.

If the build is not full size, what use is it ?... I mean where are the dogs going to ride ? Building enclosures are th keep out the elements in winter......in summer all we need are half doors and a top.

I have all the fixed windows cut in, a couple more days of fiddling and I’ll be ready to prep and paint. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

I’ve been hard at it getting all the panels prepped and primed, should be getting everything in final finish in the next week or so.
im surprised it’s taken this long.

Lower door halves are complete, cab is assembled and interior paint is done. Now I am waiting on the 3M 5200 to cure and paint the exterior.

Not at this point, I may consider it after it’s completed.
I have to push through because the wife has me building a small “adventure“ type trailer to pull along with us, need to have it completed by spring.

That’s 30 miles away from here, and I grew up in Humboldt.
