Well, thanks to "Jeepdan", my upper door gaskets are installed. Coming off of yesterday's super-high of running the engine for the first time in well over 2 and a half years, it was nice to see this little part of the project come out good too.

As usual, thanks everyone for the help and question answering!


Even Chuck Norris drove a 715.

That cab looks super!
It may take awhile for the gaskets to settle in, and stay compressed somewhat before the doors close easily. At least that was the way with mine

You will be glad to have fresh, soft gaskets around the door frame to protect your head.

Keep those pictures coming!!!

Hi Dave, great looking cab! Looking forward to the moment mine will look like that. Remember where you got the canvas top?
