May I ask why you made it a flatbed??? I mean sure its a sep up from a stepside(HATE EM) but dang wooden flat bed?? You got a mix between punk rock n redneck thats for sure haha LOVE IT MAN!! but i think a diamond plate flatbed would look better

All that hype and no full truck shots?! Haha jk... not really my style, but congrats on doin it all yourself! I wish I could airbrush. It's quite the accomplishment to see something that crappy looking come out as nice as it did. Keep up the good work.

Yeah, the junkyard wanted 500$ for a bed with scratches and dents on it. So i built one out of wood, it cost like 100$, i'm going to cover it in herculiner, should make it look better. But yeah, sorry i couldnt get the full pics, its still in the paintbooth and there's not enough room to back up and get a good pic of it, i'll definantly throw some up when i get them though.

Flatbed isn't really my style, but it's better than the bed you had on it before. The paint job looks great, especially since you did it by yourself. Overall, good job.

$$$$$$

How much have you invested in the truck? I have an 81 with a 300 in it. I am thinking of rebuilding it. I need new fendors for the front and a new bed. I though of using a bed of a newer truck but the fenders wouldn't match. The old trucks have a preset fender and the newer ones are flared out. My hood is good but I also need doors. Did the truck have much rust in the cab?

Yeah, the cab was really rusted, i couldnt really feel it under the carpet, but a little bit of extra sheet metal and a welder fixed that. Yeah, 85 was the first year EFI in trucks. I just rolled it out of the paint booth and will throw some pics up soon. I'll post again when i do. I got the fenders from a junkyard for like 40 bucks for the pair, they needed alot of work, but no where near what the old ones needed. I got the doors for about 80 for the pair. I basically robbed the junkyard blind on that steal. They came with power windows/locks and all the motors and everything. The windows are scratched to heck and it needs new door panels, but besides that it was pretty much perfect. You basically just have to find a small local junkyard and you can get good deals. The junkyards with computer inventory's and stuff are crazy, they wanted 80$ for 1 door with no windows/door panels or anything. and like 100$ for a complete door.
