Don't ask me about the 1" circle I melted in the carpet right under the driver's feet with my trouble light while chasing electrical demons!

HA! Don't we all know the feeling ...

At least it was UNDER the seat, eh?

Man ... you are really doing some amazing work on that ol' Stovebolt, bro'. How I wish I could hang out with you and learn some of what you do -- what a treat that would be.

I can't wait to see what you're gonna do with the bed ... what color(s) you're gonna paint her with ... etc. -- please keep me posted on any and all progress photos!

The bed wood came out great. Ipe, AKA Brazilian iron wood, has the same fire rating as concrete, sinks in water, until recently was junk wood in the rain forest and has to be buried to make room for good trees (usually the pictures you see of them 'raping' the rain forest is them trying to get rid of this stuff - bugs won't even eat it!!) very popular as outdoor decking in recent years. As I understand the New Jersey board walk is made of this stuff. I oiled it with an EXPENSIVE UV-proof oil and it is prettier than black walnut. Polished stainless bed strips should make it really shine. White, white fenders and Ford zinc yellow bed. frenched '59 Caddy tail lights as shown in my journal. A couple of your bed roll LEDs! Also look for my feature in my journal about installing a center pull tail gate latch inside the tail gate roll - gets rid of those stinking chains!

And that melted spot it right in the middle of the exposed floor, not under the seat. Ordered another 2 yards of carpet to replace it! No need to hang out here, from what I have seen of your work, you are up there with the best and my approach is 'just do it' whether I know how to do it or not, just like you do!

Oh, man! Yellow and white ... NICE combo!

I'm gonna check out your tailgate tutorial ... no chains on mine either, but a center-pull would be better than what I've got; threaded T-nuts.

PS - How do I get to that tailgate project journal -- what page is it on?
