Mounted the box today, rear member is a piece of 2x2, bolted from the backside. Front panel made and bolted to the posts from behind also, a 1" tubing top edge. The bead rolled detail is up high because the bed floor will be just below it.



More bead roller madness The Flying H of Death
Because the throat of my bead roller is only 18", I had to make the tailgate center panel only 36" long or I couldn't get to the center . I'll have to create some kind of surround to fit it into the
tailgate.....

then, when all is done, you need to figure out some kind of frame to fit the whole truck in, cause it`s a proper work of art.

Thanks guys! An old hotrodder friend came by a few days ago and upon seeing what I'm building, told me that this is not normal, asked if I'm taking direction from the Dark One.
I said "no Grasshopper, it's just an expression of free thought..." - then I made the tailgate panel...

That tailgate panel is wicked! You're in a different league, my friend.

Love the creativity!
