Congrats on the truck. It looks nice.

For those curious, would you mind explaining how the controls work?

There's no conversion yet. It's just sitting in my driveway...lol Next week, it's being picked up, and shipped up to Maine for the conversion; a lowered floor and chair lift. Afterwaards, it will be shipped back down here for the driving control system.

I'll steer regulary with a suicide handle, and the gas/brake will be electronically actuated with a hand control.

You're welcome. And not in the a hole kind of way. I'm glad to see someone with a handicap actually using the govt for what it's intended for and not just looking for a hand out.
