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

Making an effort this month to get back on this project. It's become very tight under the hood at this point but looking good. In the spirit of documenting specifically what I've done to merge the three trucks together here's some of the recent activity:

Steering column connected to the 05 steering box by using a 36 spline x 3/4 U-joint (Borgeson 113449) to a 3/4 double D rod (16 inches) to a 3/4 x 36 spline rag joint (Borgeson 053449) to the 05 steering box.

Extended the radiator fan shroud 2.75 inches to enclose the fan.

Connected the 96 power steering pump to the 05 hydroboost by using a 96 F-Superduty hose. I'm using the 05 steering box so the hose between the hydroboost and box is the standard 05 hose. I'm using a generic aftermarket power steering cooler mounted on the radiator support.

Used the complete 96 under hood wire harness and had to:
-Extend the wires for all the lighting on the drivers side of the truck
-Replace the side marker light sockets with the 78 marker light sockets
-The 96 has one extra side marker light, cut it out and tossed in trash
-Replaced the 96 headlight sockets with the 78 headlight sockets (all wire colors and stripes are the same for both years)
-The 96 turn signal sockets fit the 78 turn signal housings so no changes needed
-Used the 96 battery ground cables
-Made battery positive cables with military style battery terminals, copper lugs, 2/0 and 3/0 battery cable
