headlights-RVG 359 brackets cut off of the buckets, white freightliner DD spotlights cut off of their brackets and attached to the RVG brackets.

front of tandem lightbar

rear tandem lightbar and deckplating

seats-lindbergh f150 4x4 seats, inside armrest cut off, seats refilled and placed into the lowered position

I'll be scratchbuilding:

lower cab skirts for real deep low look

tall shifter

specs on the truck will be

the drawing depicts what the end result will be.

all the items I scratchbuilt will be put onto this 378 as well I want to rebuild all of these items because I love the look of them on this truck, after this it will predominantly be known as "Project Resurrection"
