Wow, this guy is good. He even makes clean lines where he grinds the paint off the surrounding areas.

Re: off it goes

Tubs welded to the floor & bolted to the bedsides or will it get fully welded?

Re: off it goes

Tubs are going to bolt in....button head bolts from inside the tub to welded nuts in the box floor flange and then the same all around the top of the wheel tubs. If you look at the previous pic at the top of the page you can see the threaded holes for the tubs to bolt too.

Not trying to plug another website here but you can guess what the stars say.
