I'm in awe. . You may have mentioned before. What gauge steel are you using and what bead roller. The bead work is incredible!

Thanks man! 18 ga. steel, the bead roller is a Magnum (Chinese), pretty crappy actually - but it was cheap

Mounted the tailgate old school style with some trailer chains from Princess Auto.



Super simple hinge, just a piece of 1/4" steel that fits into a notch on the edge of the bottom tube when the gate is lowered below level, when it's above that, it can't fall off.



Made and mounted the tailpipes, leftover tips from an exhaust upgrade on my Ram pickup, knew I was saving them for something...

More progress on the bed, made the floor structure and a filler panel at the rear to hide the frame and tank. Hinged the front section for access to the air system and battery.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
