Hello. I’m starting work on my 47 cab. I noticed the doors rub on the rear pillars, do to the cab being cut to replace the upper windshield rail by the previous owner. I think what happened is when they cut the cab to do the repair, the cab wasn’t braced correct and the rear of the cab dipped in/forwards towards the front causing the door to rub. I may be wrong.
Can anyone give me the measurements for the door openings from the firewall to the corner of the rear pillar? I think The factory assembly manual says 50” but I have about 48 1/4”. Thanks guys.
