That looks MEAN!!! Just one thing, and it's not criticism; If I were building this one, I'd mount that air cleaner at the back of the fender, closer to the cab. You'll have one nasty blind spot if you mount it forward... I know, with the big doghouse, these could be very trying when it comes to forward and lateral vision. I know whatever you do will look great and I really look forward to seeing this one finished. I may have to pick up a Viking cab... They are one of the coolest looking trucks of the era.
