08-01-2009 10:49 PM Opening the hood...
When I got this truck,the hood had the rear hinges on either side.I had to do some research and found that I was missing the second pair of hinges.They are the ones that actually have the hood springs mounted on them.I ended up finding some on the internet. I got them on the truck today,still need to work on the adjustments.Also want to try and get the hood to open up a little further.

08-01-2009 10:42 PM Getting gas...
Finally got the gas tank mounted.I was able to use a replacement tank for a blazer.It was pretty much a bolt-in deal,just had to add a spacer to keep it below the bed floor.It hangs down below the bed a little bit,so I will be building a lower pan to cover it.

08-01-2009 10:36 PM Framing the bed
Started building the inner frame work for the bed.I decided to try and use any space available,so Im building storage compartmaents into the floor.There is quite a bit of space under the bed floor thats not used.I started with the front of the bed,building a place to mount the battery and adding a little storage also.

Started making the inner structure for the bed until I ran out of tubing.I did manage to rebuild the rear lower sill and make the filler panel.

07-25-2009 10:34 PM Setting the bed on.....
Got the bed on the truck for the first time.I dont think it looks too bad for the most part.I do think the lower bed sides need to be extened down to match the cab. The tailgate even fits....mostly.I do think the bed being on makes the hood look a bit long,Im going to have to do somthing bout that.......The wheel arches are even lined up pretty well.
