Thank you for the reply.
Yes I've seen that aluminum angle iron frame picture.
but what I meant to asking you was that angled aluminum frame goes to actual tractor's frame.
Where did you hook it up to secure the whole cab?
I'm almost done mine too. I'm going to paint tomorrow.
Once I'm done, I'll post it here too. but if I could learn from you something
better idea on the securing onto frame...
Thank you again.

I should have seen your cab before I built mine~~~

Well~ some how, I did all the mounts on my idea which I had to squeez
my brain sooooo hard.:
Possibly next week sometime I could post mine though.
Tomorrow, I'm painting. and put all the windows, doors back on.
and final touch for the cabin. and Have to install all the lights for front and
back and inside light. and then have to build some tool box inside of cabin too.

and then I'm going to modify the snow blade to installs onto my bucket.
so I could use snow blade all times as well as bucket for snow removal.
