Frequently Asked Questions
Common Questions about installing, purchasing, and choosing a new cab kit. Contact Us for more info.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INSTALL A CAB KIT?
Less than You Might Think
In most cases, it will take longer to clean the cab than to install your new cab kit. This is especially true if you are using our QWIK FIT cab interiors.
If you have never done this before, plan for at least 2-4 hours to clean out your cab. Then another 2-4 hours to install your new cab kit.
This will vary of course and depends on the model, but 4 - 8 hours is a good rule of thumb for a complete cab kit.
The clean up and getting ready is usually worse than the installation…no other way to say it, it’s a dirty and crappy job. It stinks, no way around it.
But if you buy a high quality tractor interior, your new tractor cab kit will look and feel just like new. You'll find the look and feel, the noise level, and value to be well worth the time and effort.
How do your cab kits compare to original equipment?
Our cab kits use the original equipment specs.
They are AS GOOD or BETTER than the OEM equipment. Advances in technology allow us to create parts that are higher quality than the original and easier for you to install.
How do I know if I am getting high quality parts?
We only use the highest quality materials to create the best parts in the industry.
In fact, our supplier provides the materials to all the other manufacturers of replacement cab kits. We are selling the same high quality materials. But we don't cut corners and we take extra time to make sure you get the best fit of any tractor foam cab kit available.
Can I get individual parts?
Yes, you can order individual parts by contacting us directly.
Call us at the number at the top of the page.
However, we typically find that most people replacing a single part typically call back and ask for a complete kit. They say, "I didn't realize how good it would look!"
While you can certainly order just one piece of a cab kit, we think you'll find the value in our full tractor cab kits will help save you time and money in the long run.
How do I get the old stuff out?
Eliminate all the loose material, grease, etc...
…just get down to a clean dry surface. You can go over the old adhesive as long as there are not clumps.
Vacuum it out. For best results vacuum, blow out cracks, then vacuum again.
Do I need to remove my seat to install my cab kit?
Some seats need to come out, always better if it is easy.
If you don’t have to remove suspension and hydraulics on heavier models that is often best. Actually uses 2x4 for holding up chair in deere hydraulic models. Not necessary to remove seat if you have a QWIK FIT kit. Read here for more info on deciding whether or not to remove your seat.
How much glue do I need?
One can for post kits, minimum two for under-body kits.
When you touch a piece of tractor upholstery to the metal, it should be stuck immediately, you cannot reposition it! If it doesn’t stick, you don’t have enough! You should spray the metal first, then spray the upholstery.
IF you are not an experienced upholster, you should probably stay away from the glue-in headliners. There’s too many problems with getting it in right and square. Instead, you can be an installation rockstar with our QWIK FIT cab kits.
