My new little truck bed project.

Hello all!

Just found this place. Thought I would show my little project. Now I am no body guy, just an artist type with a welding bug.

Im new here, so don't laugh too much. This trucks been sitting for a while. I got in an accident a while back and finally getting around to working on here again. Cant wait to get all the cobwebs out of her.

The name is Bill.

Anyway here are a few progress shots.



*** you can see from picture #2 I replaced the sides from picture #3 and shaped the flairs and got rid of the need for mud.

I hope to repaint with better paint in the spring and will be making aluminum side trim.

Should be nice.

Sorry about the messy shop.

Bill

yes it is. Just remember to support the boxes. Had a guy bring me one in the other day he just welded up. Had to straighten the heck out of it and remake the ground off back that fell to the ground on the highway.
