Picture dump in progress! Final hood, doors mockup done. Disassembled the bed. I planned on re using the cross members and front panel, but decided to replace them when Brother's Trucks had their spring sale going on.

Re: Eric's 1966 Turbo 6.0 build

So far the hood has been Primered and Blocked twice. we ended up finding some imperfections after the first coat. Beyond time consuming but knowing that most body shops would have stopped 2 steps earlier keeps me going. I'm gonna be afraid to drive this thing!

Re: Eric's 1966 Turbo 6.0 build

This is the bed assembled. perfectly squared and front panel DP epoxied and bolted in for good. The rear crossmember is also bolted, welded and epoxied.
I modified the tailgate with parts from s chevy colorado. I modified the tailgate to accept the half circle part that makes it so you can remove the tailgate without taking the hinges off. ( like the newer trucks). Added Mar-k stainless straps and latches. Filled the holes in the gate where the chains were before.
