The dirty work starts again. Time to get working on the bed
I little bit of welding, a lot of bit of blasting then fabricating the sides and front panel
You better finish that up as the deer season is here.
Yeah . .. bad shoulder, tried pulling bow back yesterday did you hear me scream ?? No hunting til crossbow
3 bags of sand later
This site would be less if not for your endless restorations. Great thread!
John...Pretty sure this project turned in to more than "just going to get it running and enjoy it" build...
Yeah that didn't work out, my wife reminds me of that every minute of my life
I called that from the beginning!
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
Ready for her first car show tomorrow. Going to be a nice cool refreshing fall ride
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
