Default F30 Cab Photos? Modelling question

I'm currently working on a ford f30 as used by the LRDG in 1/35 scale.
I need some photos or drawings of the cab interior and the engine compartment of one of these trucks. Doesn't matter if it is with cab on or off, the interior should pretty much be the same, I hope. The bonnets were generally left off these trucks so I am doing my model that way showing the engine in all its glory.

Any help with a few photos would be appreciated. Folks here have be quite helpful in the past and I again thank all for that.

Please respond to my email below.

Default Interior

This will be pretty much standard Ford cab 12 I believe. You certainly couldn't drive one for long in the desert without the interior engine covers...

It would be substantially the same as this F8 but with an additional gear lever for the transfer case and minus the roof.

Here is 3 photos of a Ford 12 cab wreck. You will notice that the front sheet metal is more or less double skinned and in the photo of the LRDG truck you posted only the outter skin was removed. Hope this helps
