Clayton, Nice project, is that the truck that was painted light blue with white strips, and a stainless dry van, years ago?

Are you going to build a trailer for it too? Nice subject to build.

Your orange cabover looks good, im glad to know im not alone in the world, i cant let things be done till its right, the shift tower deal is good know about and that would drive me up the wall it not sitting exactly how i want it

Oh, yeah....Every time I walked by it, I shuddered....Couldn't stand it.....Sean Davis (Old Buckaroo) posted a great tip on that build.....He taped the shift tower to the floor board and worked it from there....Check with him....He might be able to shed a little light on that assembly....

 

And this rig looks awesome, already, by the way.....I love the stretch.....I know it totally defeats the purpose of a cabover, but I love it....Looks AWESOME....
