I don't have the photos but I have catalogs that show all the parts pretty much how they go on the truck. Check out the on line catalog at the LMC truck parts site. Click here

This site has the absolute best web site catalog, PERIOD. Click on the "Select page" buttom on the top of the page. Then scroll down to the page you want. Now, unless you look at the index you don't know what page. You will find the start of the indext on pages "4-5". Then when you find in the index what page the item is on you are looking for, go the the "select page" button and select the page number you found in the index.

I just ordered a bed side and some mouldings for a 70 Chevy pickup and they came in half the time they said it would. UPS had damaged it, I called and they are sending out another quarter and moulding no charge no questions asked!

So far, the experiance is top knotch with LMC.

Bed help

Third try - my answers are not showing up so I'm cutting out the links ............

do a yahoo search on "chevy truck bed wood" - both classic trucks and custom classic trucks have good articles with pics and further down is a good link to required dimensions.

I am making my own from this info eventually - current plans for walnut and painted orange bed strips. We'll see - that's a little ways off yet !

I did just separate all the bed pieces on my truck yesterday and sandblasted the support rails. Sure glad I had a torch to loosen ALL the bolts !
