    I had the steel painted after wire wheeling it and sanding it for hours and hours. I then brought it to a bodyshop. I know the owner and he hooked me up. I would have done it at home but did not feel like a black polka-dotted house. It came out good. I then put the wood on it. Almost complete. Next up the wiring and the aux. lights.

    Go here to see the pics.

    Looks like you are doing a great job. I like the utility flatbeds offer which is why I put one on my 69 K20. Sure would be even nicer with a tilt feature. Will enjoy seeing the finished product.

    awesome TJ, keep the updates comin... I'll be putting a flatbed on my tow rig as soon as time/$ allows. Following your build definitely gives me some design ideas. :)
