What a shame.To remove somehow or scrape off will be an undertaking.Not sure if replacement headliner and cab panels are available (which aren't original anyway).
For what its worth here is a kit but its more of a Hot Rod style-esp the door panels..

Newc,
Wow! it is coming along very nice. Gives me ideas what mine might look lo
like if it was restored. I am sure your fenders will look fine, with your attention to details!
Keep hitting at it! Get your punch list and keep crossing things off!
Thanks for the update!
Regards,
Chris

Previous owner admitted to undercoating cab. New problem- I was warned about this. instrument tower does not fit dash completely.! tight on the bottom and a 3/8th inch gab on the top-Photo. Appears that not using the dash pad under the tower may affect this? Loosened tower bolts and will attempt to adjust tower at firewall. Meanwhile a nest of wires is the old self-cancelling turn signal switch. We'll see how this goes 6weeks left. Photos wrong pixils. Newc

Bolted up the steering column-had to loosen dash. Nothing changed the fit. tightened dash back up. Instrument tower to dash -still odd fit-correct at bottom- open 3/8th" along top edge. Cab fits fine , firewall fit is perfect- top and bottom. correction would require dash warpage or different tower- not going to happen. Staying as is. Tightened steering box and pinned bolts. How did FORD guys get these done on an assembly line? Newc

Newc how about a custom made gasket or some rubber shims to try and align the fit a little evenly, might balance out the top/bottom alignment some???

Well; here are the new photos; We put the hood [incomplete] on and floor boards are in. Note; the toe board goes in First. The floor board is only held by 5 screws. Apparently Trucks did Not have floor mats! My painter has the missing hood side-the old one was trimmed![we never saw it]. Fenders are in my own shop. running out of time here now. Eng/rad holds water. gas line hookup today and first start this weekend! Newc

Both '32 commercial vehicles and big trucks had taupe-colored rubber floor mats as standard equipment. It is basically the same as that for passenger cars, except shorter in the front area because of the shorter cowl. The openings in the mats for the transmission shift lever housing and hand brake are unique for the large trucks.

Can't find those floor mats-'32 parts [even reproduction] are disappearing. Painter finished the lft hood side, so installed. Actually started the engine today and the electronic ign would not shut off! Had to pull coil lead from dist. My wiring. So the front fenders are being done outside here, cause of the dust, and bad weather around here. Hood fits a bit odd. Low at the back- maybe raise the rear mount at the firewall? Time is running out on this project- 1st of July limit. Newc

Install the doors before you do any shimming (if that is the solution).

Newc,
I know your too busy to talk, with the deadline approaching. Good luck. You have come a long way! Good luck with your fitment of the sheetmetal.
I see that your gas tank seems to have a fill port on the drivers side also? Still learning here!
Battery disconnect position looks familiar too. I am glad I put one in my 32.
Truck looks very sharp!
Regards,
Chris

These 'seat' tanks are set up for right hand drivers, but not punched out. Never again for a burned car. Doors never burned and should just fit. Very tight in shop. Newc

Newc...nice job! Most of the time if an alternator has been installed and the engine won't shut off the addition of a diode in the exciter wire to the alternator will fix the problem. The alt back-feeds the ign and causes the trouble.

So the new diode will point toward the alternator? One wire alternator. Newc

New,
Just my thoughts as I remember, and I can barely remember breakfast. The strip on the diode should be towards the alt.
