Default CMP 3G1 Ambulance body parts needed.

Hello Everyone,
Well after finding a woman 7 years ago, getting engaged 6 years ago and getting married 5 years ago then fixing the house up so she'll stay has taken up all my time and my Ford CMP ambulance project has been tarped for a few years now but with the final renovations of the house done and just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary I think she's going to keep me and now it's safe to say I can return to my CMP Ambulance project!
I have collected most of what I need to restore my CMP 3 ton Ford but now I would like to start finding the rest of what I am missing or replace damaged parts so when the time comes, I can complete the Ambulance body so if anybody has or know of the parts I am needing I would greatly appreciate it!
So here is what I have;

The body at one point was lifted off by throwing chains through the window openings and in doing so damaged all of the window frames and glass frames so I would need to find straight window glass frames for the front window and both side windows. The rear door window frames are ok.

The interior ceiling dome light housings are there but I need to find the 2 lenses. In the drawings they look like they have squared edges. I'm also missing the water tank, ceiling fan and the lower half of the 2 plasma bottle storage rack.

I have the SB 23 Ambulance body parts manual that lists the parts numbers and a couple good photo's of the interior of the body.

All of the rear interior and exterior door handles are missing and the side tool box doors are either missing or have broken padlock hardware. I have a photo of one side that has an original padlock hasp that is broken to see what I am looking for.

A few other items I need to find are the 2 operating arm crank handles to raise the stretcher racks up, the front panel of the interior heater housing and the folding rear steps.
I'm also looking for the blackout side curtains for the interior windows. The part numbers for those are listed in the parts list in my photo's.
Thank you for any help with parts for my project.
Regards,Derk
