Good to see you back.

Just throw some some wood planks down on that frame and run it.

It's about time you showed up. We need some progress reports. You had a lot of irons in the fire when you Runn Oft.

I'm going to try to stay on topic here. I have a real lot of things to tell. It's really been involved for me. I dont know where to start with it all.
So I guess I will start here with this truck bed.
But I'll have to have other threads for the new happenings and update the old threads.

Remove it ???

A fast drive down a rutted dirt road would have taken it off, and disposed of it nicely...hint, not your road, try the next county over....

Astronut, Yes this one is going to do the job. I just was very unprepared to have to work on another one. I bought the red one in Hope's to use it while my diesel truck was down and then sell it. I had to tinker with the red one a little but not like this truck. This one is in a little worse shape. But it was cheaper than the red one.
I'm just going to have to weld on the red truck. But that's another thread.

Kbs, I didn't quite understand the new shop thread? Then I thought about. Lol
The tent garage was at The Harbor.
Lol It was just bought for this job so i could weld in the rain. It was raining a few days and i needed to weld and it was my days off. I dont have enough days off.
I shoulda made a thread about assembling it tho. Amy helped me assemble it. It took us 3 hours.

Toprecycler, I have just the wood for this. It's free.
I think I have around $90.00 in this whole bed build. Materials wise.
$130.00 in welding supplies.
And a few days welding.

Whitetrash, I still have a lot of things going on. Just not with my Mom and Dad now. They're good now. 2020 is the year I'm doing my stuff. Im back to doing my things.
Im glad to be working on my things again.
I have some more threads coming and I want to finish the dozer tracks. I need to go to the scrapyard too. It's all coming.

Doug you ain't a kidding! I almost threw it off my self.
I did use the front over tho. I welded it back in the front of my built bed. It was the best piece of steel I didnt have to come up with.
