this is great... I totally get that body work thing. I just don't have enough patience and my youth injured elbow would not tolerate the paint on paint off sanding.

Looks good.

I like what you did with the front of the frame to make the bumper fit. I am going to have to convert to a newer style axle and then do that same chop off the front of the frame. The width of a superduty frame isn't the same so ill have to deal with that as well.

Will the interior have the 1978 Dash? or the 1996

The 78 dash will go back in. I'm going to try to "adapt" the 96 gauges to the 78 cluster to keep the retro look. I made an effort a while back but didn't get too far before other priorities took over. The goal is to keep the truck's classic look both inside and out.

The dash adoption will undoubtedly be a challenge but so cool once it turns out
