I'm working on one of these Dodge L 1000. Do you have any new updates on your build.

To fix the fog - coat the windshield with Future Floor Finish.

In the future, don't use superglue/CA glues to install glass - use Testors or other brand "clear" or "windshield" glue. No fogging. I position the glass in place, tape it with low-tack tape from the outside to hold it in place, then apply the windshield glue from the inside. never a smear, fog or mess.

X2.
Tim's advice on not using superglue on (or near the vicinity of) clear and chrome parts is valid, but if you prefer that method, using Future on the glass beforehand helps make the fume fog easier to remove if it happens as the glue sets up.

Dave at Americam Industrial Truck Model has both the sleeper and day cab. Yes it was worth the money to me.
