Yeah, but it was tough getting the title for the truck. I tracked down the old couple that owned it and called them. (The truck was still titled in their name) The old lady thought I was trying to scam them and she kept hanging up on me! Lol. It took some time, but through the secretary of state I obtained a new title.

Ahh...I never would have thought about the title. Cool that you finally got it though.

I cut the bed and set it back on the truck. It took like ten times lifting it back off and trimming before it was right

Once the bed was back on, I realized the driveshaft would be about an inch into the bed floor when layed out so something had to change. So I decided to raise the bed floor.

I drilled out the spot welds so the lower crossmember of the front of the bed would stay in place.

Needed a place to put the gauges for the airbags so I decided to eliminate the center panel vents

The notches around the edges of the wood were made to clear the tabs that you push in to remove the dash piece. This way I can remove the piece the guages are mounted in just in case something happens

If I ever did this again, I wouldn't cut the holes for the gauges until the fiberglass was finished. Made it tough to keep the surface level. Then there was alot of trimming excess fiberglass out of the holes
