That is looking wicked Blair! I wouldn't spend any time making the cab tilt, I think it's just perfect with the hood open. The engine is very visible and cool in it's own right!

On the flatbed , I would weather it, but then take some graphite and rub it on the areas where tires from cars being loaded and unloaded would rub and make the metal used but shiny from wear ...
