I'm going to stick with the longbed at this point. I don't want to deal with shortening the frame or shortening the bed, or a different shortbed or so on and so forth. I have thought about it and i go back and forth, but at least for now, it is what it is.

Jeff, the front of my bed was also bowed out. I cut the spot welds and removed the entire panel to work on it. I had lots of shrinking to do (po hauled cinder blocks) and it was far easier to fix being able to lay it on a flat surface. You may have to remove the rolled top portion and replace it with tubing.

Hi Rusty, I was planning on taking the bed apart to do that, how is the rolled top, on the front panel supposed to be attached to the sides or are they?
they have been welded and are cracked so i assume that's not right.
I was gonna take out the rivets and use a round headed bolt replacement. like a buttonhead bolt? I know you can buy new rivets but i don't have the equipment to install solid rivets. When I was in the aircraft division of the US Navy, we used soild rivets but they were aluminum.

Looking good Jeff, .. the "mocking things up with a freshly painted frame" stage, should give any cold-blooded American Hot-Rodder enough fuel to follow thru to the end of a project....you are well on your way....for me, learning the smaller details of how the sheetmetal was supposed to look like finished..then learning how to do it, was the most rewarding part of my project..because I had NO idea what I was doing..and later it looked so good on the frame,..even in primer! One step (panel) at a time..

I have done my share of bodywork and now its time to improve upon my experiences! Funny you mention bodywork...I was in the garage tonight shadow priming a rear fender and board sanding to see the low and high spots. Oh wow do I got some sheetmetal work to do! I like it cause it is so rewarding, as you said! I have been searching for some decent body hammer/dolly stuff and I want one of those shrinking disks! I want to use as little filler as possible. Thanks!

I was just curious if you happen to have pictures or a thread about your IFS install. Love the thread though!

Hmmmm, so Jeff likes body work. Joe doesn't. Joe likes mechanical work and wiring. Jeff doesn't. Methinks there should be a labor swap arrangement in the works here!

It's looking good, man. Keep after it.
