Looks like a fun project Kerry , if ya decide to ditch the dented parts , I'm sure to have replacements lol 

Either way you'll definitely have fun building in your style and I'm headed for snacks to watch it come together!  Gotta skip popcorn nowadays argg

Some ya all had some good answers! Some are a bit Hilarious too!! 

I know I need another project like I need a hole in the head but I’ll be shortening the frame considerably, single axle, dents are ok in the cab but I thought of taking some out of the hood as fiberglass doesn’t dent!! 

But anywho, in case the suspense is getting the best of ya, which it probably isn’t! I’ll be building a Bandit Series race truck out of what ya see here!!

Kerry I'll be watching. They could create a dented up Mack RModel, but never put either the Garbage Truck, or the WT9000 into production? Curious decisions back then.

True! Cab is left dented and I did float out the “dents in glass” on the hood to make it smooth again! Frame is cut and rear suspension is on, cab floor has been cut to drop cab down over the chassis.
