    Man I really like the IDEA of putting the chains in the bed. They won't mess up the outside while bouncing around. Honestly never seen it done that way. COOL

    Steve, just curious how your chain adapters attach to the tail gate and bed side? Are they intended to support load, like a heavy object being slid out, or the 20 stone mate who plops his hefty backside on the gate to rest a bit?

    I've sat on it Roger and it seems fine and i'm around 210lbs, to be honest its not gonna see hard heavy use as I have a small trailer for heavy stuff like engines etc. More for transporting parts in boxes etc & towing the Coupe.

    Sounds like it's good, Steve! Best to prove it out, because its a given that some dolt will park his hefty backside on the tail gate at some point in time, even if he should be thumped for doing it! A guy around here worked on his Falcon Ranchero for a loooong time, and finally pulled in a bunch of favors and got the new color shot. One of the first times out the gate was down, and he parked his own backside on it to chat, not considering that the new cable supports he'd installed had never been stretched and adjusted. He's got a pair of parallel dents about a foot apart on his gate now, perfect images of the bumper brackets.... At least he has no one to blame but himself....

    Great work. We have some equipment at work that have pins with ends like your tail gate hardware has. I never realized they were called that though. That's a great idea. Your chains inside the bed is a great idea too. I'm kind a surprised the chain isn't SS though.

    Roger, here in the good ole USA, think about almost every piece of scaffolding that you ever put up. The fasterners are very common securing the X bars on them.

    Right!! I didn't think of scaffolding, but I do recall those on the construction sites I visited over the years. Thanks!

    Woo hoo yesterday was like summer had returned So got a chance to get the floor in the bed, I'm using a sheet of 3/4" WBP Plywood, i decided to put in a 1.25" x 16swg square box subframe to support the floor slightly higher as the kickup in the frame was a bit on the close side. The 16swg is nice and light but strong.
    The subframe is bolted to the returns on the bottom of the sides, I didn't want to use rivnuts here so turned up some threaded bungs and welded them in to the tube and then sanded smooth.


















    Next job was to cut the ply and drop into position, its held in temporarily with some button heads as run out of countersunk screws. I've ordered some ribbed rubber for the floor covering which will get glued down as I want it usable, In the last pic you can see marked out where I intend to put some polished stainless strips.

    Gonna look great! How will you protect the bottom & sides from moisture, given that you do get an occasional rain squall in the area?

    I believe Gravitex is an Upol product that is a stone chip spray on product that sets very hard and it is used on the rocker panels and lower front apron of cars. It can be used as a coating as Steve intends in wellsides.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    Whip has summed it up pretty well Ryan, I used it underneath on my coupe, It gives a sort of bobbly finish which is quite pleasant to the eye and is really tough.
