Just at first glance, it shows an awful lot of the firewall, the ebrake lever sticks out like a sore thumb and if that all is showing greatly, I could imagine what the rest of the behind the dash parts are gonna look like while seated. May have to rethink this a bit. Maybe add some extra panels to close it in a bit. Which means new custom kick panels and some other cover up goodies. Damn this custom work sucks.

I do but it won’t work with the stock center console I’m using or when I switch out to the bench seat I’m also gonna have done.

I wish I have all the time and money to do this kind of detailed restoration on mine. Mine is 1996 XE KingCab but haven't done anything to it since my dad gave it to me. It has 325,XXX on it right now but still runs with no issues. This build of yours just made more want to restore it and upgrade the weak KA24DE motor to something better like SR20DET (super expensive ) The truck is not bad just faded paint some interior cosmetics upgrade.

Did you finish the truck or still working on putting it together?

Its more or less a back burner build at the moment. Getting parts as I can afford them. Which isnt very often, lately. Just waiting for a certain job opportunity to kick into gear. Then and only then can I get back to really doing some work on it. I have more time now than I ever have. Funds for living life outweigh the need to put together a truck that would get used very little, & pay insurance premiums for such.
Being burned on things such as 2 paint jobs, getting the frame powder coated, only to have it fade and start to rust(not enough powder coat put on it)because I left it outside in the sunlight. Just doesnt make one want to do much more to it. Especially where I have to rely on others to do work that I have to pay for.
Furthermore, my house needed a new roof after living here 20 years. It was way over due for that. $2500 later, I have a roof that will outlast me. I dont plan on being in this house that long anyways.
I want to get outta town onto some property so I can build my Nissan parts empire. Plans are to have about 15-20 trucks at any given time. Pull the best parts and hang them on the walls. Sell on ebay as I have been doing. And keep going with other ways of making money that I am doing currently.

Just curious - what stage of development has it been left at?

Is the engine installed?

I thought about going V8, but I've seen lots of projects that started out on here and did not get finished up.
