Kato my Walthers F40ph

Title says it all. I want to custom detail my Walthers F40ph with a custom paint scheme, in commuter configuration a la Metra, with ditch lights, markers, grab irons, etc. Would love some advise from anyone who has tackled this beast to assist. This will be my first venture into super detailing and eventually DCC conversion, however standard DC is fine for now. Directional lighting is all I need right now. Been searching net for a kit , only found Kaslo Shops Via kit. Where to start? What parts needed? Where to get them? Strip original paint or prime over? Well with that the floor is open. Thanks in advance!!!
