Thank You DJ.  test fitting the cab showed the drivers side fuel tank was out of level. so I freed the front mount and dropped the front of the tank down to level. there are fit issues with the interior tub sitting on the front mounts properly, so I filed the locator pins down. the firewall hits the back of the engine. next step is test fitting the hood on its pivots. thanx all for the comments and criticisms.

thanks guys. with the hood sitting on the hinges there is a gap between it and the cab. so I took a little off the back of the engine to allow the cab to move forward and tighten up the gap. next will be taking the cab apart and detailing it.

thanks Mark and Kerry. got the wing windows and window gaskets done. got the cab set in place. like the company logos from the diamond reo so I decided to use them. marker lights, horn, air vents, mirrors, grab handles and emblems were put on with a minimum of chrome. thanks all for following and checking in.

Really nice job just enough dirt on everything  ! 

I had similar problems w everything fitting together , not something I wanted to address after paint ! Weird because it didnt show up during several mock ups .

That’s looking great, as mentioned, just enough gunk on stuff to give a realistic look.

thanks guys. had to trim  a quarter inch out of the intake piping. got the air cleaner mounted and piping hooked up. may take the marker lights off and paint them, not crazy about the chrome. the front wheel track is a hair wide may narrow it some. considering a roof mount ac unit or the spoiler. need more flat black for hood hinges and radiator touch up.
