    Are those Lucas headlights on the F100? When I was a kid growing up in Ohio they were illegal, wish I had a set of them.

    I am not seeing the opening for the stake pockets. You do want the ablility to run a billboard on the side of the bed...
    Sorry to question your plans.
    Great work as always!

    Great work! You said you don't want any thing classy on here, quit using stainless and polishing it. I'm getting jealous. Haha

    Just curious, what's the purpose of the stake pockets if there are no openings in the top rail? Simply there for stiffening & visual from the side?

    I'm gonna put a few shiny bits on Ryan just as highlights, otherwise it will look well bland at the rear, but nothing like my coupe

    Yes Roger they offer a bit of stiffness plus if you have ever seen a bed without them they look kinda odd !!!

    Been making good progress with the bed, one of my pet hates is rattling tailgates so I decided to put a return on the sides of the tailgate so I could glue in a U shaped rubber, basically 2 pieces of angle, I couldn't find any angle so cut some 3/4" box down each side.







    Some nice chap pm'd me saying I didn't show enough welding pics and asked if it was because I farmed it out I explained Sue does all the welding and left it at that what a dork !!!
    So just for him, here its tacked up & then welded.










    Heres where the U shaped rubber will sit.









    Just need to make a cross piece to go under the tailgate (nothing in the scrap bin) and it will be virtually ready for fitting.








    I also altered some bolts to look like rivet heads to hold the tailgate hinge brackets in place.








    I finally made a decision on my rear lights, couldn't make my mind up between 32's or these 37 Chevy's, I plumped for the 37 Chevys as they are nice and the squareness suits the bed shape and I've not seen them used much before.

    Great work on the gate. I've been curious what do you have for a cab? It seems like you're getting close to needing ones here soon.
