    Hello, I'm sorry to bother you from the start. I had purchased a 1969 Ford F-100 flareside longbed years ago and had gotten it painted and new frame cross members built and now I'm not sure where to them properly. If you could please give me a
    idea where they go or even a picture of under your truck. Thank you for your time.

    I took out the old bed, bought new stainless steel ribs that you refer to as the railing (can't remember who I got them from as I bought a lot of stuff that year form Carpenter, LMC, NPD, and K-Mar) and all the hardware. You need to buy the facing planks from Trex, not the floor planks because the floor planks are too thick and not wide enough. The facing planks are perfect. You need to rip them to width, then groove them so the strips that hold them in place can sink down - otherwise they will ride on top of the planks and look stupid. I like the fact I can use the truck in inclement weather and not worry about the bed.

    Thanks for the compliment - I really like driving it. I get lots of admiring looks from other middle aged men! I guess I need to do a Mustang to get the girls to look.

    Hey there. I was looking at your bed and how you used the Trex. I am wanting to do the same thing to my shortbed. How do you like the look and durability of it? Also, did you cut out the old bed floor or did you lay the wood over the top. One last thing. Where did you get the railing in between the planks? I'd like to basically do just what you did. Nice truck, by the way!
