Default FL80 Firetruck Conversion

Been slowly building a totter out of an old 1996 FL80 firetruck. It's an 8.3 Cummins w/ Allison 6spd. We geared it from a 6.14 to a 4.30 with an air locker. We built a the sleeper from 2x2 tubing. Trying to get it finished is the hard part.

I pulled the bed off to paint it and cut the back wall of the truck. Now I can cut hole in the box and slide it back to paint back wall and roof of the truck.

Todays progress. I finished the lower stainless cap on the sides and the back. Capped up the rear door floor. I need to build some window plugs and add some sheet metal on the bottom of the cab cutout for the seal to mount to.
