With only 13" between the frames, everything that stuck out got chopped (oil filter, manifold, starter, etc) and replaced with custom made parts.  Honda Civic radiator, electric water pump, remote oil filter, custom exhaust (1 1/4" wide!), gearbox mounted starter, plastic fuel tank and radiator overflow, blue air tank under Ford battery. Leaving room for the cab, on the right, to be detailed inside. The dummy fuel tank , under, hides 2 oil coolers and covers the diff, which sticks out on the other side.
