Im replacing the cab corners on ol' green and havent done cab corners before. Im not a bad welder and have heard of many different ways to do it, does anyone have any experience doing them and whats the best way to attack this project. Thanks.

place the new corners over the cab corners and mark all the way around with a fine pen the cut on the inside of the line with a grinder. claen all surfaces tack it in place then slowly weld it in place grind smooth bondo and bobs ure uncle .. Thats what i did both sides took me about 3-4 hours

make sure when welding it do staggerd tacks so tack one side move to the other and work your way too the middle from eather end of the metal too stop warping,
