Thank you Hermann! Glad you like it.

So, I have came to hydraulic ram. It made out of aerial, cut to size. My aerial was stainless. So it was cut by tool, like "Dremel". Here is a jig to cut.
106
I will use plastic tube to enlarge outer part of ram
107
To drill new holes I used diamond boer
108
Here is how the truck looks now

A little more progress.
Side mirrors were made out of 1,5mm plastic and 0,5mm soldering wire
121
122
123
Mirror brackets are little complicated, then Big trucks have. PickUp doors have a slope at the top point. 
124
So I improved my old soldering device.
125
126
The wire was localy flatten and drilled for rivets. Here I broken one of my 0,4 drill bits.
127
I have got Cab roof Marker Lights from Fireball Modelworks. Thank you Joseph!
128
But as Joseph said: "they are smallewr then Silverado's one. Compare to photo 4.
129
I plan to use rectangular black adhesive tape as a rubber for marker lights. Visually it should make them larger.

Note, that wipers were cut off.
Finally I made cab handles from square styrene 1х1мм & strip 1х0,3мм.

Thank you Mike!

So still working on small things: added a La brackets to fuel tanks
137
Here I've made a crutch to front baterry box bracket becouse it interfere with front cab bracket 
138
Opened holes for reflectors.
139
I had a big gap in left front wheel housing. So I drilled semi axis and glued 1.2mm brass wire instead of standart pin. And glued 2mm brass tube inside coresponding groove.
140
I didn't like left fender panel line. Photo is bad, so I drawed it in photoshop
133
Now I made a template
134
...filled the line. And lower wind sheeld gasget (scrached, when cut off wipoers)
135
Sanded shooth
136
Rescribed, but not ideal any way...
143
Now everything is ready for priming. I have not used air brush for 2 years already
141
Now the result has confused me. The pigment is going down too quik So first part of spraying is O-key, but the second one give me semi transparent layer. The primer is Motip aerozol merged out for air brush.

Some progress:
Here is Chrome frame around headlight lenses
124
Tried to copy with solder wire.
144
Turn signals and tail lights were found in my spares. And future reflectors below
149
Couple missing things. There is imitation of hood hinge environment below
145
It is deep, under lower edge of hood.
петли
It will looks like this
147
146
Here I tried to fix oblique tyres with strips of styrol, around the rim. Looks better, but not ideal
148
Finally cut out flat windows
150
Here is how I made an imitation of engine sump (in case it can be visable from one of angles).
Used harden resin
151
152
153
154
155
156
Noticed, that I missed one thing before painting: dump bed gaps I should fill with putty. Now it already filled and waiting for spraying again.
