close to its home!  need to find an inch or so in the fire wall for the passenger side head but its close. 

Cab cleaned out and demo done.  Hood latch adjusted, fenders secure to cab.

Chassis prepped:  oil cooler, AC, fan clutch all deleted.  Heater core ports taped / plugged.  both dip sticks shortened, oil fill extension deleted.
