Glad to see the motor back in! I suggest PMing a mod directly with your request, you'll probably have better results.

The bed has a few dents in it but nothing around the wheel wells and there is no rust except where someone started to sand it down and left it. There was a dent that was filled with bondo. I sanded all the filler out and used my hammer and dolly and worked the dent out. The old filler smelled like cow crap bad.

Well, I learned that when you raise the bed floor it is very important to make sure you have a tailgate in place and all the gaps are good and lined up. I didn't do that and ended up spending a week getting the driver bed side corrected.

I tried to just crank the box side over with wratchet strap but it didn't correct anything because it was just pulling the bed floor over. So I made a gusset and welded the bed floor to the pass side of the box. This held the floor in place.

Then I hooked the strap between the top of the dr bed side to the bottom of the pass side. The gap was only excessive at the top of the dr side. I cranked it straight and welded in the gusset on the dr side. Problem solved. Now the pics....

I cut down some 16ga to make the filler for the rear of the bed.

This is as far as I got sand blasting before the electric motor on my compressor took a crap. I'm almost ready to start applying filler to cover the welds and smooth out the dings.

I almost have one side smooth. I hate all the sanding! The corners are the worst.

Looks tedious for a bed! What type of fillers are you using?

I used 16ga for that rear piece. And you are right, tedious as hell. I'm running out of steam on the bed. Been sanding and sanding for days. I'm real close right now.

I just want to be done with it so I can move on.

The brown stuff is fiberglass. The top filler is Evercoat Rage. It's actually light blue but I used some red hardner and some of it's pink. I used the fiberglass to cover the welds and dings, then the evercoat as a top filler.
