This post is not for the faint of heart
Tonight I harvested the patch panels from the truck's original cab. It was a bit painful to cut it all up like that, but it really wasn't salvageable at my level of body proficiency. I am going to use the roof, dash, cowl and a couple patch panels from around the cab. I cut off the roof, cut off the dash and cut out the patches I'll need. The rest goes to the scrapper.

Spare distributor cap tucked neatly in the cab behind the seat:
Someone stuck a coffee cup in the access hole for one of the fender bolts:
