IMO.....since you are using a MIG welder I suggest you cover the cab with a material that will stop the sparks from sticking to the glass which will cause you to have to replace the windshield-mirrors and window glass. It might also be advisable to keep welding sparks out of the cab....and make sure that no sparks get near your airlines on the brake system.....unless you like to cut and splice.....other than those suggestions.....good start!....the clock is ticking till roll-out!.....geofkaye

As Geof said- Nice Start!
You're actually doing what I think I will do; use a cab w/ a sleeper like an extended cab pickup, for extra in-transit seating, plus giving you the extra space to recline the drivers seat when desired.
Great minds DO think alike! ;-)

.....I learned one thing this trip....I can't sleep in a recliner....I need that bunk!.....or I can't walk the next day....and whizzing out the window is considered tacky-even in a truck stop.....geofkaye

Well looks like I got about 55 hours to date. 1/31. I had someone else do the frame ext. (strongly recomended)$5k for the ext. and moving the tires back one set of holes. The subframe and floor went on very quick, one Saturday. Then came the corner posts and walls. Getting everything perfectly square when it is vertical is a little more time consuming. Thanks for the advice on covering the cab. I need to cover my cab opening. My front windows are pretty bad already, prior to me buying the truck. I lucked out on the air lines, no holes yet. As soon as I get it framed, I'll pull it off the truck to sheet against the cab.
