You're off to a good start.

When you go to install the interior, the sleeper is a tight fit - I like to leave the sleeper floor out, install the main interior, then trim the sleeper tub section to fit. Somewhere along the lines the part "grew" and causes a fit issue.

Test fit several times before comitting yourself to the install.

I can vouch for that- test fit, test fit, test fit, when you are building the AMT White Freightliner DD!

well now that i turned my kw into a wrecker..i have my rear end back to finish my cabover

i started the interior today...still have to do the detail work, but so far it seems to come alone nicely...

any advice on getting the gap on the cab halves gone?

Just putty and sanding. When I do another one I am planning on just sanding off the moled in rivets and replacing them with the new decal rivets.

Looks pretty good. What happened to your drives side step? Your seam work is nice on the cab.
