The cab is tiny, no chance for a fatman or cage to fit. The plan is to cut just behind the door and add 5 inches to it making the cab longer. The windwing will be removed and the top will be chopped.

Working on the firewall. Got it trimmed out a little more. Cut up the wheel barrel bottom to use as the basis for the firewall recess. It'll be 4' deep and 30" wide. Once that is all tacked in I'll tack weld the doors closed and flip the body onto it's back. Cut the bottom door jams out and replace them some reproduction pieces I got from a jeep website. Then the real cutting starts...

Really hot & humid here got some more work done on the firewall. IMO, it's coming together.. I say this not being a body guy and find doing this stuff challenging.

Patched a couple holes in the fire wall and trimmed it to fit the recess panel I made. It is a lot of work...

Husqvarna I find out uses parts from several countries.. the carburetor is clearly marked "china"....
It's a cheap saw something like $190 , but stil the spark plug is $6 and I put a $45 chain on it. Anyway I have it torn down to bits and pieces. The entertainment will be if I can put it back together and make it run again...

Spent the morning putting the chain saw back together. Ended up with only one odd bolt left over. Pretty sure it came from the saw and not just a stray left on the bench. But with that said, I have no idea where it goes. Saw started right up... so I'll call it good..
