I have built three of them for these trucks now. The last one was all diamond plate, and old trucker bought it on the spot at a truck shop, when I was looking for chrome thingy's? So I started designing this one. I have a box for ever box, that all hold specific tools, the under bed boxes, hold 4 suitcase boxes on drawer slides. I started building aluminum trim for it a little today.
If you can't tell, I am a metal head, by trade (artist actually). I have been looking at making these as a side job, but would not do paint. I have considered a bolt up "KIT" too. THis bed was assembled in 8 hours with cleco's then all the extras. I built the wheel wells on the pullmax machine in one piece (the sides where replaced from this picture, I hate mud/bondo). THe pullmax is the big green hammer with the red star on it in the last picture.
Lots to do. Thinking about making aluminum bomber seats with reclinability and heated moduals from the factory seats? I have too many other car body project around here.
As you can see from this picture.
In the back ground I have one of the many cars that are in on and well not quite under the shipping crates. THat red vw on that box will become a two door carson top all aluminum speedster for the misses for our 20th anniversery.
Boy I cant spell for ****.
