so I finally got a cab for my very rusty 406 , thanks to Von and Stuntmog,
its looking better already even if the front axle is still out, should be back on all fours within the next month, so we had to find a use for the old remains, my 2 yo son was distraught that we cut it up so now he has a mini mog to play in, had to tek screw a go-kart wheel in for him to steer with tho, haha

prob plastic, cant afford to ship a set on steel one over here, other thing is I am using my drum brake rims on disc axles which looks freakin awsome by adding almost 8" to the track, seeing I wont ever be carrying a load it shouldnt be a problem, future plan is to make cab a DIY DOKA and stretch it myself, keep it orange and the case decals, so it will be a bit different, cant say Ive seen a case DOKA

That might be because they never made one?

The case stripes do look sharp, a industrial take on the early 70's chrysler strobe stripes.



If you did make a doka out of it, wrapping the stripe around the back would look very cool.

In honor of your proposed doka project I've taken it upon me to do some drawing but I need some reference from you or anyone else with a Case still sporting the stripes. I need to know how tall the stripe is so I can scale it correctly.

And if anyone with a doka (you know who you are) can measure up the distance from the front of the front door to the rear of the cab, I can get a nice pattern laid in. Might even buzz it out on the router at work tomorrow becasue hey everyone needs an waxed mahogany case logo, right?

So after monkeying with the factory Case logo a bit I decided to edit it a tad. One of the issues I've had is the fact that the "tread blocks" that the case script is cut from are not equalized, the other is lack of dynamics.

So I solved those issues to my liking. What do you guys think?

Rusty, if you do stretch it, does it become an MB4/94/4? :D
