Two friends accepted a token payment at their shop and cut 4" just blow the window where it is flatest. The top went down with only a bit off on the posts and fit the back almost dead on. The posts were cut in three places and bent back to line up. They did the cutting and tacked it on solid so that I could attempt to finish the weld. I'm not a body man so I welded alot and filled alot, it's not "metal finished"

These are various views from funny angles. In my little garage I can only get about three feet away so I climbed up. These are just before the chop which is posted next

bed is mounted and holds the poly fuel tank and is covered by a lid to look like a wood floor. This is the first "floor", it gets remade

This is the donor bed, '50 Chevy long bed. I cut it at the front two stake pockets, added a panel from another bed and narrowed the tailgate. Had to use the top tube from the sides to make the tail gate

grill from the side, the hood panel will come up to the bar to enclose the grill

I photoshopped this to see what the chop will look like and to see how tall it might be
