Not really, the white bed in the picture was rolled on the drivers side, The gold truck has a dent that covers the whole front half and a second dent on the drivers side and I still have the white bed I sent you pictures of before with dents on both side(standing in the driveway) I'm still not sure which bed I'm going to fix when I rebuild the white truck.

Where are you going to buy this bed from? I'm pretty sure you have every bed in a 200mi radius.



Stephen do you really want to get rid of your mazda bed?

Man it must be tough living in areas like that were rust is such a problem. I could go the next 10 years not washing my 04 and it wouldn't have rust on it the way that frame does.

I came home and unwrapped the truck and pulled it ouside for a few pics. It turned out ok with a few spots/imperfections but I'm pretty sure most will buff out. As usual my camera sucks but heres a few pics.

Nice work.

You painted that in the garage?

What paint did you use and did you build a spray booth or?


My suggestion is you need to pinstripe it now. It helps the eye transition better from color to color. Black would look great.

I was actually going to do some 1/8' pinstripes in it but I didn't have any tape so I just went for it. It was sunday evening when I painted it and no place was open.

Yeah the stripes don't look exactly as I pictured them but the truck looked plain and needed something.
