Looks great, you will enjoy blowing snow in a nice warm cab.  Looks like that rear cylinder will pump some heat  into the cab.   :woohoo:  :text-coolphotos:

Looks good . Definitely a plus in wet windy weather. I actually have to open the door once in awhile to cool it off. I have a flexible dryer pipe coming off of the cylinder block fins near the exhaust valve area for heat. Kohler 16 model. Nice and toasty. You will like it.

Does the installation of the cab require drilling into the sheet metal at all?

No, it uses the existing bolts for the fender, and clamps to the footboards. On a 5xi it also uses the screws for the hood larch as well.

 

Here is a set of installation instructions.

Word of warning, the flap over the hood will actually wear and scuff the paint. Especially when it gets cold. The vinyl will become real abrasive. Also the zippers on the flap will scratch up the hood decals. Using “Mothers Back to Black” helps keep the vinyl soft and ply able when it gets cold and does not attract dust.

                     I attach a strip of rubber with magnets  to protect this area where the cab rubs the hood.
