I grabbed a Fire! recently and the front panel has seen some better days. I had hoped to find a spare, empty, used cab and then just swap everything over, but I have struck out.

I guess I am wondering if it makes more sense to plug the holes with dowels and fill and then fill that bottom section or would it be easier to try and cut a new front? I've never replaced a panel in a Williams cab, so I am not sure how labor intensive it is/how the pieces are joined or if it is even possible.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Fiberglass resin, sand and paint/decal.

I was wondering about this. I have used some bondo fiberglass for ramp repairs before, but nothing this large.

It will absolutely work for filling a huge hole like this.
