1930's Model A truck bed is hard to find in good shape.  And if I did find one i was going to modify it anyways..

So decided to build my own.

I used a bead roller to give it the factory look.

started with the sides and then the floor.

what did you use to make all those small cuts on the bend?


it looks awesome...
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

car needed more foot room.   so i built some side scoops using 22 gauge sheet steel.    This gave me a nice rolling bend that follows the sweeping curves of the car.

fuel tank
this is 10"x36" stainless tank   The tank is typically used up high in sand rails and 2wd buggies.

I wanted it tucked under the bed hidden away.
However the fill neck and line ports were in the wrong spots.  So i had to move them.

I also did not like the straps that these use.   i made new mounts. had to build a jig to roll the 3/8x5/8 bar stock.

Haha, it's almost a shame that you can't see the tank.  Nice!
