With eveything welded in,I made the basic doors,and mocked up the hinge locations.I will need to come back later and make the door inner supports,lock assemblies,and weather seal rails.

Got working on the bed floor today.Had already cut out the main floor panel,trimmed it to fit and for the compartments,then welded it in.

08-28-2009 10:21 PM The results...tailgate..
After a little shrinking,and a bit more grinding,the skull made it on the gate like I wanted it.I cleaned the rest of the outside a sprayed it with some etch as well.

08-28-2009 10:14 PM Cleaning things up...
After welding everthing up,it was time to clean things up a bit.I dressed all the welds on the outside of the gate,then did the same to the inside.I sprayed some rattle can metal etch on the inside to see what it looked like.

08-22-2009 10:20 PM Fixing the problem........
In order to fix my problem,I cut the ends of the raised panel out,and moved them towards the out side of the gate.I checked to see if the wreches fit,when they did I welded the pieces in thier new location.I made filler panels from the left over bedside pieces(saved them when I shortened the bed).With everything welded up,I still have I little more work to do before I can attach the skull.When I cut the panels loose, the gate twisted a bit,and also moved a little from welding.Hopefully tommorrow I will get the torches out and make a few shrinks to tighten eveything back up.
