hmm...please elaborate! Not sure exactly what you mean here
I will not be adding any "new" metal. I have the top half of an undamaged cab cut at the bottom of the front pillars and 12" below the back window.
are you saying I should build a substructure under the old cab so that when I cut it off I have a shape to fit the new one to? is it permanent?
