I'm also currently drilling some holes in the air tank to weld some more Ports in. I'm gonna put in 3 more 1/2 inch ports, and a 3/8 port on each end.It is just an old portable air tank I had lying around.

There were a bunch of holes drilled on top of the bed rail. I went through and welded them all up. Also grinded down the stake pockets holes to weld fillers in.

Since I put the fuel cell in, there is no need for the old gas door. My filler was for a ranger so it had to be modified slightly. Have it almost fully welded . Then I will grind it smooth and start the body work on that.

Pulled the latch off the tailgate, working the filler plate to get the proper body line in there.

Trying to get A visual of how the wood will look in the bed. I burned a few with the torch, and put a few plain ones on. I think I'm gonna burn all of them. Drill all the holes then give them a few coats of water sealer. Lock them down with carriage bolts.

I needed some wheel tubs in the bed. Not wanting to spend money on trailer fenders I decided to cut up a 55 gallon drum I had. Got them welded in.

I installed the handle relocater inside the tailgate I will post pics of that when I can. The bed turned out good but it was a lot of work. I have about 80 hours in the bed floor alone. About 200 carriage bolts, nuts and washers. About 60 dollars in supplies and a lot of labor.

Yeah, its surprising how quick labor can add up. Nice job so far.
