Worked my tail off this weekend. I cut up and routed the edges of the oak for he bed floor. A little tougher than the normal oak bed floor because it's hinged and will open to access the battery, fuel cell components and of course show off the rear frame and 4 link set-up. I took the bed off the rack and put it back on the frame to fab the bed mounts. The routed slots will get metal fillers painted to match the truck.

I hate buying steel at home depot but need 2 pieces to keep going.... 3/16 X 1 1/4......$52.00. I almost soiled my pants!

If you use any original Gorilla Glue....don't get it on your hands. It's worse than POR-15!

Hmmmmm can't post pictures.....security yoken issue

Oh no! not the dreaded security token issue again! Good progress, Couper. That's the worst place to buy steel. But if you gotta...

And the bed floor with the metal strips in. Bolted in with SS Carriage Bolts....end strips raise up with the hatch. Like to figure out what size struts I need to hold her open and also keep it down when closed.

Last shot when I brought the bed home

Thumbs up

Bed turned out very nice [c. If you can get a pull scale figure out how much weight you need to pull up the deck, at least a starting place
