Not got the spare cab yet as I'm going to sort out the first cab build first.

Yea, I've already bought something from him already. Top guy, with some great stuff at fantastic prices.

Bit of action today!
Heres how I modified the grill,
So simple!
Firstly start off with the R series grill
Image
Secondly apply tape as shown
Image
Thirdly cut the lower part of the grill off using a razor saw or equivilant
Image
After some filling and test fiting you should have a P series grill!

Here's a money saver and (I recon) a better way, use a cotton thread.

I took one end in one hand and held the reel in the other.
Make sure the cab is sercure.

Found this on YouTube and there's a post on here, I used it to cut out the doors. Brilliant.

Is it easy to keep a straight line? I always thought that I would make a very wonky curved line! haha maybe its easier than I thought

I found it easy enough. I think that it has less potential for damage. Just take it easy and ensure the cab is secure on the edge of a table.
You'll use a load of cotton thread. But just keep using new bits of cotton. Try and change it before it breaks.
