I've seen pictures of the Duplicolor bed armor on here and it looks pretty nice. You can get it at part stores in cans or rattle cans.

They also got this trunk paint. http://www.duplicolor.com/products/trunkSpatter/

Only down fall its not tan

Then its no good for me.

I ordered a gallon of al's liner that I will roll in (not spray). It'll be ready for pickup at 4wheel parts tomorrow. Tonight my goal is to find a material to make the rear interior panels.

Thinking either Masonite or some type of ABS sheet maybe 1/8" thick.

ABS would be preferable because it would be easier to cut and not require a jigsaw.

men in black on IFSJA.org sells some really nice 1/8" interior panels. He does ABS, masonite or diamond plate I believe.

He quoted me $60 for both front doors, and $60 for rear panels in ABS with $20 shipping. I seem to think his are CNC machined.

Saw that, but i need something in my hands by the weekend, i dont feel like waiting around and paying shipping.

Also, not worried about them looking nice on the outside because they're just gonna get bed linered!

Marn, if you decide to go with masonite or plywood I would advise you use plywood. The points around the edge that hold the part in will hold up a bit better in plywood than it will in masonite. If you can get a nibbler and a couple of sheets of sheet metal to cut it out of you will be so far ahead it will amaze you, specially if you are going to cover them with bedliner.

What lift you have on the waggy and what size tires? I have a 77 which is a basket case right now but going to restore.

You might go to a heating and air conditioning contractor and ask for one of two things. First, they often have scrap leftover sheet metal you can get real cheap or free. I have saved the acess doors off of roof top units and old furnaces because they are nice heavy guage metal and it is often got a nice baked on enamel coating. these same HVAC outfits may be able to get you some of those. i am going to do my floors with some of this metal. as for the nibblers, real sheetmetal workers don't use air niblers. Eat your Wheaties and buy some new sharp aviation snips. Maybe for a six pack of PBR, a tinner will cut your metal for you with his snips. His coworkers will make fun of you though.

2'' body lift time cough cough... I would go with Monstaliner. How are you going to color ALs liner? You should post some of your Landscape Architect designs too, I would love to see them. I majored in Horticulture.

I ended up getting a sheet of 1/4" plywood, I kind of thought the same thing about the masonite, how it kind of flakes and tears eventually. I looked at diamond plate and some sheet metal, but figured a few things.

1. I'm trying to stay on a budget. I dont want to do things "wrong" but I dont want to go the most expensive route either.

2. If the cardboard/vinyl panels lasted 40 years, im sure my plywood/bed liner ones will last at least 5 or 6

Hahaha, not a bad idea. I'd just pick up a set of air shears at the ole Harbor freight if need be.

I ended up just getting a roto-zip type bit for my dremel which made short work of the plywood as you will see.

1. I realized something awesome. My body bolts are not within the tub. They have access caps that remove that were under the rubber bed mat, and are under the carpet. I can EASILY install a 1-2" bl now, but i think its gonna wait untill the truck is finished and running well on the gas tank and brake systems.

2. I'm going to color it with the tan color it comes with

3. Ive posted some in the show your artwork thread in the art section.

I grabbed a roto-zip type bit for my dremel at lowes, and grabbed a sheet of 1/4" plywood, and went to town.

Took a while, i had to make 1 that came out horrible, remake another that fit well but didnt come close enough to the wheel well, then spend a ton of time sanding and grinding one to fit just right, and then used that one to make the template for the other side.

After maybe 2 hours and all this:



I had 2 perfectly shaped side panels!



These will get covered with Al's Liner when it arrives.

Then moved on to an additional project that I'm not entirely sure how to proceed with. I picked up some el cheapo lights for the truck, not that I do alot of night wheeling, but when setting up camp and whatnot you can never have too much light i figure. I knew i wanted to mount a set on the rear of the truck, but I grabbed a second set and thought maybe I could put them on the front.

I fiddled around with them but couldnt find anywhere that I really liked. They fit fine and would work well on the bumper, but they hang down and kind of just look out of place to me.


Any suggestions? Maybe i could mount them up further behind the bumper on the frame so they are less in view? I could easily weld up a little bracket for that.

The ones on the back are going to be installed as such:


Nice and out of the way, but will provide plenty of light for setting up behind the wag (i tend to back into campgrounds to unload) and they will be good for hooking up my future trailers as well! They are mounted to the rear frame crossmember, so they are behind the bumper and out of the way, looks a little deceiving in the pic, but they are behind the bumper.

Anyway, thats all I did tonight. time for a beer and some TV!
