Parts 82 Cab fenders

The back side of the cab fenders are missing. I am thinking there is actually an entire page of parts missing from this publication (more evidence to follow). I copied the top sides and used the copies as the undersides as well to get the proper thickness and rigidity.

Then I installed the fenders and the transition step pieces between the front wheel fenders a the cab fenders. As expected, fit was not very good.

The next step calls out the buildup and installation of the pioneer tools. The last picture shows all the parts provided. The parts called out, however, range from 111a through 111m and 112a through 112j.

Fighting with the cab assembly and the prospect of all this scratchbuilding/parts creation has drained my enthusiasm for this build. I need to refocus once again and build something else for a bit.
