Thanks guys. 
Jeff, frame color will come to me at the appropriate time, lol.

I finally found the info another member sent me back in 2015 for the measurements to drop the cab to a more realistic height and still tilt properly, so I’ll be doing that on this build. I’m also using moebius wheels and some tires from Gary Wallace (GW trucks).  So, stay tuned, plan to actually keep working on this when time allows.
