How do I get the old stuff out? How clean do I have to get my cab?
This is a popular question we get when people consider doing a cab kit installation.
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.
Step 1. Tear out the old interior.
Cut, rip, tear…whatever it takes. Don’t be afraid to get in there and rip stuff out. Don’t be foolish, however. Watch out for wires and other attached parts.
Step 2. Eliminate all loose material.
Eliminate all the loose material, grease, etc. Just get down to a clean dry surface. Perfectly clean down to the bare metal is not necessary. You can install your new cab kit interior over the old adhesive as long as there are not clumps.
Step 3. Vacuum it out.
For best results vacuum, blow out cracks, then vacuum again.
This is where it really gets dusty. But it’s also the difference in having a cab kit that is installed correctly or one that you hate every time you jump in the cab. Wrinkles and loose upholstery are not only an eyesore, they are unnecessary.
Taking the time to appropriately clean your tractor cab will ensure your cab kit installation goes perfect.
