Post 1950 chevy Questions

Hey all,
As some of you know i have a 1950 chevy.
i was wondering how hard would it be to put neon lights around my side windows?
How hard is it to make the boards for the bed in the back of the truck.
Should i paint the frame? What color?
any comments?

thx

The lights are easy, neon companies have neon ribbon that you can put anywhere you want. Its so easy to finf even JC Whitney sells it. A wood bed is simple, pick your species of wood, cut it to fit, seal it place it in and your done. As for painting the wood frame, its up to you and how you want the truck to look.

The bed wood is best if you order a kit. About 500.00 with the stainless runners.That's what I did. Neons ! YUK!

Hey, Spikes

Here's a really cool site I found for info about our trucks! :
<a href="http://50chevy.freeservers.com/intro.htm" target="_blank">http://50chevy.freeservers.com/intro.htm</a>

Enter, and then scroll down to the "Bed Restoration" link - he gives measurements and everything you need - you'll love it!
