i'll have to build reinforcments for the back the cab now, i left the doors open overnight and the back of the cab slowly caved in, i managed to push it out with a portapower to close the doors and line up the door gap, but it will defintly need some reinforcments, i was thinking of making an "L" shapped bracket that ran across the floor of the cab and up the back wall about 15 inches or so out of 2" flat bar, then welding in gussets, anyone have any other ideas?

i think it would work better if you make an "L" shapped bracket that runs across the floor of the cab and up the back wall about 15 inches or so out of 2" flat bar, then weld it in gussets :0 ;)
