Hi, I should have said above that I’ve a JCB 3C Mk2 and I’m looking to repair the cab but if there was one out there for a reasonable price that would be great. I have all the glass in my own cab now but it’s pretty riddled with rust. :(

Thanks

If somebody is making replica cabs then that gets the thumbs up from me :thumbup: lets face it these were popular machines in their day so lets hope that this helps those restoring these machines :thumbup:

It would be quite a bit to spend on an old occasional use machine. I would hope the standard glass would fit. I would guess a restoration purist would not not like the corner posts.

I was doing up the maths on steel alone and excluding my time and I think I can build this cab for way less.
I think I’ll have a crack off it. Sure can’t be any worse than the rusty cab I’m in now.
I see another member is selling a mint one on here. It’s like showroom condition. I’d only love to get mine as good as that.
I’ll start with the cab. :thumbup:
