I used panel bonding adhesive to glue flanges to the bed sides where I didnt want to burn the exterior paint.   Guess only time will tell if it'll hold up.

1961 Rust-O-Mod Pickup Build thread - Page 3 Empty Raised Bed Almost Done

Post by 13-ball Tue Apr 27, 2021 10:31 am

The bed came out pretty good - in my humble opinion....

I like that it looks almost stock even though it's a ton of custom work.

Somewhere I have more pics of building it - can't locate them in my mess of files right now.  Will post when I locate them.

The bed looks Fantastic!!!
