new life for MF362 cab

Recommended Posts

often see these little chaps with no roof , lost years ago probably , so i have converted one to be a low profile roof version , ideal for the dairy farmer , & a new look for the model :)


cab apart with glass still intact


cut the center of the roof out ,so the edges  just stands proud of the glass roof


looks a bit like this, some fine sandpaper is used to get it all level


a replacement roof was cut from an old cassete case


glued into place


painted with plastikote smoke gray


leave to dry & then fit to tractor

alongsde another 362 with original fitted cab

SPOT ON Marcus....  :o - What a fantastic idea mate... I can't believe that nobody has thought of it before now... hats off to you...

All the 300 series were available with the low profile cab I think... you would "straddle the gearbox" as apose to a platform hi-line cab... What a great way to "rescue" these little tractors and make them new again...

11/10  :o

Looks good sir,

I have a cab with the roof missing as well.

If you look at the early 300 series with the red roof and black cab, the shape of the roof is fairly similar to the Britains 362 cab minus the roof. The roof line of the early 300 series sits inside the line of the cab walls and sweeps backwards slightly. a Bit of filler and filling should get the Britains cab close to the shape of an early 300

Isn't thast just THE BEST idea anyone on here has ever had Ryk... They transform that little tractor into something REALLY special..

Marcus... would they fit a 135 as well mate  ???

would be a bit big for a 135 marky but may suit it better if it was a 185 like seans done , the centers would need sleeveing to fit the 135 axle as well

not far off will , same tyres but from an old britains redland loader
