Adding front cab door on Mustang skidsteer???

Plan on getting a brush mower for my Mustang 2044 skidsteer. Where can i get a front cab door kit from? I plan to add an expanded metal layer on the outside of the glass. I wonder if i found a used door off another brand skid, if i could make it fit my machine. I not worried about covering the sides.

without a good air filtration system, you will be miserable in an open cab. Eyes, ears, nose, mouth.. all covered in the finest dust you can imagine. It's like baby powder getting kicked up and why a lot of guys with mulchers see their A/C and cooling systems clog. More power to you if you can breathe.. I used to have an open cab.. for a long demo. This was back when mulchers were just hitting the skid steer market around 2000. I wanted to go out and buy an SCBA like I used in the fire department because the dust was so bad. I think I still cough..

I have a 1994 mustang i built a door for out of lexan. Its cool but can't compare to the door on my gehl that i bought new. A wiper and wiper fluid? Insane! I would try and find a door made for that specific machine. Might have to bite the bullet from a dealer

That's how it looks when bolted up to the door hinges I mounted on the cab. The little thing on the left side is actually on the inside and I hook a tarp strap thru that to the cage just to hold it shut.

Once I actually finish it, it'll be trimmed the size of just the opening and the framed in aluminum to give some support. I've yet to figure out a good hinge..
