 Wow, you been well busy, I haven't done a cab change for a few years and those pics took me back a bit there.
Nice bit of work you have been doing there, the floor and paneling looks well nice and so does the burner and window, keep it up and let us know when you have more pics up.

cheers. its thanks in no small part to advice from people on this site, the odd panicked phone-call to Andrew at custom diesels (poole) and stopping in for bits Asif's breakers in Mirfeild once in a while - not to mention massive help from all the people in the pics - especially digga and benny-k who were crazy or stupid enough to be up for the cab swap mission despite our complete lack of experience.

more will follow as project progesses...

Good work, nice to see others getting stuck in and doing the job proper, I've got some similar 'no turning back now' photos of the crossmember/floor change I did on my SWB van, carried out in similar conditions, i.e. outside over autumn/winter/spring 2008/9. There were times (most of January) when it sat under a permanent layer of ice and my hands were numb in 10minutes from the ambient air temp (without handling metal) but the satisfaction in getting everything back together and another Dodge back on the road and ready for the next 20years of english weather is well worth it. Looks like you picked a nice spot to do the cab change.
it seemed like a good idea at the time
