Well- test fit the CAT into the chassis today- there's actually suprisingly little room in front of the engine considering how long the hood is! And as you'd expect there might be a few ground clearance issues with the oil pan. I'm thinking of rectifying that with a remote sump.

I've roughed in the Cadillac Escalade headlights- I'm thinking these will sort of split the difference between 'aero' and 'non aero'. Or not. I just wanted to try 'em out...

Looks good from this angle! This would be a nice change for a more "regular" Transtar too. It looks like what a 1980's Lonestar would have been if it existed at the time. I like it.

Well ya stretched the hood, then the body didn't look right, so you made a crew cab, but then the frame was too short, so ya stretched the frame, of course with the body/hood so long, ya had to lower it to get it to look better... WHEN WILL THE MADNESS END?!?!?! :lol:

 

I think the Caddi headlights look really cool on there. I would definitely add those! AWESOME!!!

Might do that- if things go to plan I'll be using the majority of the Escalade interior.
