SHEET METAL REPAIRS
A special feature of the S-Series Cab is the availability of
complete body panels for repairing the cab. The types of

service man to restore a damaged cab to new condition
without the usual problems associated with cab rebuilding.
Extensive metal refinishing is not required and most
restoration welds are in areas of low stress.
