Is it purely for show or do you plan on using it for other purposes?

Sorry guys have been super busy with other parts of the truck. Back in December we had a bad tornado hit. Nothing really effected my house except for the camper getting blown off of my work stand. Had to pretty much start all over. I've put down glass where the wood supports were and about to lay more down to fill both sides in completely. I'll be making a fake window just like the Gordini and thinking about calling it the Fordini.

A little bit of both. I will be volunteering at all of the TORRA and TRDA races in west texas and looking to finish this just in time for the march 18th race where I will be sleeping in the bed of the truck is the camper is finished.

That's too bad man. Post pics once you have replaced your camper.

Not the best picture but trimmed the bottom to 1 inch to get the window the same height as the rear cab window. Tomorrow I'll be doing the same to the other side.

Considering you've already got the flared bedsides and fenders, this is going to look awesome. do you plan on filling the sides with a solid panel or going with glass/plexi?

Yea trying to keep it simple and light so I'm doing an inlay made of fiberglass so it has the shape of a window and will either paint it black or have a shop cut some black vynal to look like a tinted window just like the Gordini.
