Got to have cup holders
You need to finish this up so you can take it on safari to Tanganyika!!!!!
The dirty work starts again. Starting work on the bed
I little bit of welding, a lot of bit of blasting then fabricating the sides and front panel
3 bags of sand later
How do you have time to do all this?
I dont rest much
Bed frame is sandblasted and 2 coats of por-15 . I know I'm going to regret it when welding the sides on.... although I am considering just bolting them on since wood floor will hide bolts...still deciding
Some really nice work you're doing. Liking this thread.
I need to get up to the steel place and get a couple sheets of 16 guage so I can make the sides and front panel but in the meantime I got 2x12 pressure treated wood for the bed floor. Ran them thru the planer down to 1". Just ship lapped them no metal strips. I will fasten with galvanized carriage bolts
What about making it a flatbed? I've always wanted a flatbed for some reason.
My father's was actually a flatbed and it would be more practical but I never warmed up to the look
Trying to salvage this tailgate and some other bed parts
