I host them on my site and here's the text to display them

http://jniolon.classicpickup.com\bed...ssmember01.jpg

crap... if I put the "{img}" code in it show the pics and not the text... the address above is what I put inside the "[img]" html codes




I don't understand your last post completely... I can see where I'd get water in there... but the orig was completely open on the bottom... I hope to get a good coat of primer/paint in there and I could always cut in drain holes too ??? wouldn't that work ??

Click the image to open in full size.

I started cutting out notches with a hole saw... and didn't like that... then tried using Metabo with cut off wheel and making square notches... didn't like that... gawd I'm picky... then I cut the whole corner of the tube out with my plasma cutter, dressed it slightly and added the mounting angles on the inside (bedside of truck)

then I slid it into place for fit (sorry, some of the pictures are a little busy, but I wasn't gonna move all that crap... zoom in !

open on the bottom will dry.. open on the top is a trap..

drain holes.. well maybe..

the images do NOT display with Firefox, but they do with Chrome.

attached is what your link looks like in firefox

John,

Looks like it will work to me. It would be a good idea to make sure it had drain holes in it. In reality, with a good coat of sealer in there it will last longer than you will....LOL

sam,
the last post I made with reference to 'my site' didn't contain any pics... just the address of the picture file...

yea, firefox and chrome do some different things... and ME doesn't do anything well !


Maybe a nice coat of industrial epoxy finish on the inside... that stuff is indestructable. thanks Bobby for thinking I might live that long !!!!!

you should get you one.... it's fun. It comes from 40 years in the steel business and construction business... lots of drops and damaged stuff that can be salvaged... and ther is always a quart left in a gallon bucket of just about any kind of paint you can imagine.

I started working in a machine shop as their clerk/timekeeper in my early twenties.... dang I wish I'd learned that trade from some masters, but it didn't interest me back then... had access to every kind of machine and machinist...kicked myself several times for not taking advantage of offered instruction...
