Re: Killer

Its just been chill'n in the shop while I look through all the junk I got for it with the new truck, progress is coming soon
The new truck is gonna be a drag truck, so no worries of it taking priority over Killer, I was just prepping it for storage & day dreaming on it

LOW DOUGH, This is what he is referring to Linky

Re: Killer

Well guys, so far today I have practiced sectioning the inside of a fleetside bed side to raise the floor for my Z

I have a old rusty bedside that I could practice on & figure out the best way to do it, so later I will be starting on the bed that I am using on my truck... Wish me luck & strait cuts

Re: Killer

Well do to life in general, I didnt get as far as I wanted today but I got a fair amount done

Im not going to post all the pics I took, as I plan to do a FAQ on bed floor raising

I did a test panel first (only did half of it cuz I needed the other half for fixing my bed)






The front is the section I raised & it is sitting on a board

Re: Killer

Then I started on the repair of my drivers bed side

Parts panel, the section I need only needs a lower cup & has a small dent




Old quarter


New quarter


Got the marks made for the sectioning to raise the floor



Almost together

Re: Killer

The front is just modified lower A-arms & 2-1/2" drop spindles with bags

Rear I basically just made the lower part of the frame even with the top of the frame & gusseted it, that comes out to 6-3/16" Z

Re: Killer

i already have 2" blocks i made up to help lower the rear. i know i can trim the inner to fit, just worried about the heaterbox that bolts on the outside of the firewall, i guess i could smooth the firewal and put a heater inside the cab from an older truck

Re: Killer

It's looking good!

I was hoping at first you were fixing the wheel well on that crusty bed because I need to fix mine on my fleet bed. The bed floor is gonna look cool
