Dis netjies; ek was die naweek by Gerbers 4wd (Pomona) en hulle cabs is soortgelyk - die dakrak se ontwerp verskil effe
Ek oorweeg dit egter om aan ten minste 1 kant 2 ipv 1 "deurtjie" in te sit, moontlik beide kante
Hoe open die skuifvenster - vanaf die canopy se binnekant?
Pryse op die IFS en SFA asb
Thanx

You can't buy sections like that. That frame is manufactured from plate. If you really want one like that, get someone to make a CAD drawing for you and then have it laser cut and bent. But then the costs go up.

Very neat welding, looks good.

Sometimes I wish I could be as handy ... can do a few things, but not this....

Enjoy.
