Default Fitting top wood on 29 CCPU

This is maybe a stupid question but do You normally have to do alot of custom fitting on the top wood on a 29 CCPU? My side wood above the door going from the rear cab corners are sitting down tight on the rear cab corners but the rear cab top wood doesnt fit down tight on the upper portion of the rear cab panel. I have the cab fitting good on the frame. The doors fit pretty good and the cab is square. It seems I need to trim the side wood on the rear corners so the back cross wood will fit down tighter. I have a 1/2" gap between the top of the back panel to the cross wood. Any Ideas?

I don't, ...but then again we make our own wood using the factory engineer's print as a reference for each piece's dimensions. If you are using someone's commercially available 'kit', then yes I would expect for you would need to do major rework including sometimes re-making pieces to fit. Maybe you can reach out to whomever supplied the kit and ask them to remake that piece, -or possibly send you a new board where you can make your own??

My 29 CCPU has a 6-1/2 cab extension and I used a combination of pre made kit wood and custom pieces. I used white oak and had to massage the kit pieces to get everything to fit properly. Not that difficult.
