I hope you're making a pretty penny on this, dealing with that kind of rust is sucky! Great looking fabrication, making body mounts that no one will ever see look good isn't something to be taken for granted.

I'm so jealous of your welding/fabrication skills and your work shop! I wish I had the shop and the tools to learn it. Need to wait till I can sell this damn house and buy a new one!

Iíll come out ok. I look at it as learning experience and hopefully it will also help spread a good word about my work. I would love to someday be able to run my own shop and not have to work for someone else to pay bills. Thanks!, I look at it as just because itís not seen, doesnít give you an excuse to cut corners or get sloppy.

Iím very lucky to have in-laws that allow me to use their shop. That has really allowed me to expand my abilities and tool collection. It just takes time and patients. Some good instruction doesnít hurt at all either. You can certainly do this kind of stuff out of a two car garage, there are a lot of people that do.

I didnít get to spend a ton of time working on this project this last weekend but hereís what I did get done. Finished cutting the floor of the bed out and then mocked it up on the truck. Made a plan for the framework and a shopping list of steel to pick up.

Now that I have a plan and can see how much room there is for everything some extra material on the frame needs to be removed. At the same time I took off the unneeded original bed mounts just to clean everything up.

Everything is ready to be assembled for the bed minus the steel to do it so on to the next part. One of the many things to do is repair the floor of the cab. Starting with cutting out the bad part of the passenger side.

I started making the replacement panel, but have not finished yet. I should be able to show some decent progress after next weekend.

Thanks for checking in out and the comments!

How do you go about making a replacement panel like that? Hammer + dolly? Bead roller? Brake?

Iíll do my best to show how I go about it right or wrong, but basically it takes several steps with a brake and bead roller.

Hereís a little update for you. During the week I picked up the steel needed for the bed frame so I continued on with that project. The first thing on the agenda is to get the hinges made and tacked on the frame. Started cleaning up the frame so I could weld and found a ton of bondo again.

Attached Image: 134.jpg
Attached Image: 135.jpg

Hereís the frame all tacked in place. It took some time to get the bed positioned level and square to the world.

The making of the front mounts. Some alignment pins and another set of mounts just like the cab.

After welding up the frame its time to get the bed floor fitted. The cross members are to straddle the new frame so they each had to be notched. The plasma cutter made quick work of this!

The floor in place and the ends are welded down now. Next up is to fill in the gap along the sides and then fit the wheel wells.
:Cheers: Kyle

Awesome project and amazing work!

I think it'd be so cool to have something like this to throw the bike in the bed without really needing a ramp lol

During the week I figured out what was needed and ordered up some gas springs to lift the bed. So the first thing is to get them installed. To get the required force Iím using two 200 pound and two 250 pound springs.

Attached Image: 149.jpg
Attached Image: 150.jpg
Attached Image: 151.jpg
Attached Image: 152.jpg
Attached Image: 153.jpg

With the gas springs in and working well, itís time to take the bed off, flip it over and weld up the cross members to the new frame. I also added in a couple braces.

Attached Image: 154.jpg
Attached Image: 155.jpg

After putting the bed back on found out that the braces that I thought would clear did not so some new ones were made. After all the welding was done the bed did not fit quite right anymore, so, I spent some time tweaking it to get it where it needs to be.

Attached Image: 156.jpg
Attached Image: 157.jpg
Attached Image: 158.jpg

The springs worked out perfect. It takes probably 20 pounds to get it to start going up and about 40 to start bring it down. Now itís finally time to put the wheel wells in and finish up the floor. All that had to be done was to trim the sides of the wells to fit up to the box sides.

Things are coming along nicely so far. Next weekend ill fill in the gaps along the sides, make a panel to fill in the back as well as a latch to hold the bed down and then I think I can call it done!
