sorry there cell phone pics but its all i have i will have my girl friend take some later

i herculined the inside of the bed and the bottom body line. i followed my fender as well thats were all the bondo was so the herculiner cover it

it was definately not a show bed so that was why i went this route as to getting the paint to match my truck. now i dont have to worry about scratches though. haha

That trailer bed is now his bed. The first picture shows his truck with a stepside.

Looks good to me.

Not digging the flat black paint, would look better if it stopped at the body line rather than at the hood, or
Do the whole truck black
