Thank you!
So still working on small things: added a La brackets to fuel tanks

Here I've made a crutch to front baterry box bracket becouse it interfere with front cab bracket

Opened holes for reflectors.

I had a big gap in left front wheel housing. So I drilled semi axis and glued 1.2mm brass wire instead of standart pin. And glued 2mm brass tube inside coresponding groove.

I didn't like left fender panel line. Photo is bad, so I drawed it in photoshop

Now I made a template

...filled the line. And lower wind sheeld gasget (scrached, when cut off wipoers)

Sanded shooth

Rescribed, but not ideal any way...

Now everything is ready for priming. I have not used air brush for 2 years already

Now the result has confused me. The pigment is going down too quik So first part of spraying is O-key, but the second one give me semi transparent layer. The primer is Motip aerozol merged out for air brush.

Some progress:
Here is Chrome frame around headlight lenses

Tried to copy with solder wire.

Turn signals and tail lights were found in my spares. And future reflectors below

Couple missing things. There is imitation of hood hinge environment below

It is deep, under lower edge of hood.

It will looks like this


Here I tried to fix oblique tyres with strips of styrol, around the rim. Looks better, but not ideal

Finally cut out flat windows

Here is how I made an imitation of engine sump (in case it can be visable from one of angles).
Used harden resin






Noticed, that I missed one thing before painting: dump bed gaps I should fill with putty. Now it already filled and waiting for spraying again.

Some small update
A friend of mine (probably known as Stratos75) have drawn and printed roof*lights:

Here it is, fitted to my template.

Finally sprayed chassis, plus couple more parts

... and head light recess. I alves slightly fail with masking.
But I'm glad, that this part of cab is finished. Though all plastic and rubbers on a cab are waiting.* *CRAZY*

And small tizer:
