Default Re: Looking for a new Pickup Bed - Update and paint

Found this old post - have done a ton of body work and primer and paint to the bed.
Rubbed it out today. Will install the wood and stainless strips soon.
Ended up replacing almost every rivet in the bed.

Itís not going to be perfect - but considering what I started with, Iím happy.

Still have to fix the tail gate. Itís bowed out and just springs back when I push it in. Same delima - repair the old one - will never look like new, or drop $300 plus shipping for a nice new one.....

Right now Iím going with 87 year old metal.
