    Viking Cab Full Enclosure

    I recently purchased the kolpin full cab and will give a review as I continue to use it.

    1. Installation instructions (grade Fair)

    They were written by someone with a poor grasp of the English language most likely never installed one of these cabs. The pictures are good but lacking in some aspects of the installation, many of them should have a zoomed in view to show the steps in greater detail. With all of the above a self installation is still possible, just go slow and don't tighten up the bolts until you are appx 70% installed. You will need two people for most of the installation.

    2. Initial Impression on Quality (grade Good)

    The cab system does appear to be made from high quality materials. I had some initial concerns with the Lexan door system but they are solid

    3. Customer Service (grade Excellent)

    One of the latches for the windshield would not extend as it should. After further inspection I found the metal pin that engages the detents was badly scarred. This could only occur with a bad pin making it through quality control and being installed in the handle. I emailed Kolpin, explained the issue and Kolpin has a replacement on the way!

    I'll post more as I continue to use the cab along with pictures.....
