Did you get your paint yet?
Yep painting the box together is a toughie. I split mine apart (48 Chevy pickup) and it did make it a lot easier. The bummer is the sides are welded to the rear crossmember, not just spot welds but a bead. I cut them apart and simply left the weld out. Worked fine, but I also never used it as a truck. If you were going to use the truck as a truck you would have to bolt it a little better or weld it or something.
