As you can see it's has some rust around the front of cabin. Doors are a little rusty as well. Ideally a new cabin would be ideal but any cabin parts would be a start. The doors are repairable but if there are better condition parts available then that's the way I would like to go. Has got 7500km on the odometer the running gear is good. Would be such a shame to see this beast go to waste.

A little rust gives it character! Heck, a squirt of paint would dress it up if you wanted to - but it isn't required. That is a heck of a truck though!!

That definitely is a brilliant starting point. If it is mechanically ok, there is not much wrong with that beast (apart from the fuel consumption).

Front door would set you back about 350 €. Shipping an entire cabin over there would cost you a fortune, but I can ask if you want.

That rotted strip between front window and grill plate, is that a fixed part of the cabin or part of the movable grill plate (or whatever the official name)?

I would definitely be interested in a price to get a cabin. I'm not sure about that piece under the window. I think it is part of the cabin itself but it's pretty much non existent.

I have been trying to look at as many pictures of good condition ones as I can so that if worst case I can copy them to fix the current cabin. It is a fairly straightforward design.

Unfortunately not. I don't think anything from the 2 models are the same but See what you can find anyway. I really appreciate your help.
