Hey, went to the body shop today to see the progress of the truck and also to deliver a handle relocator so when they shave the tail gate.
After calling ScottyG and getting a few more truck accesspry places names, I ended up that I couldn't find any stepside roll pans that had the same contour of the tailgate. So since we couldn't find one, they are going to be welding a piece of steel and using some mud to fill in and MAKE it fit the contour. I'm also having them weld the emblem holes and get her all clean :D
About 2 more weeks and she'll be back!!! YAY!
Here are some pics.
The mirrors are getting painted and also the door handles 8)

Q - did you get a whole new bed? Why is it black? Is that factory primer?

The entire bed wasn't replaced... all they changed was the side, they unbolt VERY easily on a stepside bed.

That's straight from the factory just a black paint that comes over the fiberglass, same on the tailgate too... they will primer it before they paint it.

When it's done and all smooth, you'll love it. Can't wait to see the finished product. May as well shave the gas door and have it relocated to inside of the bed.
