    What do you guys recomend to patch some rot at the end of the bed. I have two spots that need about a 4inch wide patch. Do the patch panels you can get through JCWhitney etc fit the countours of the bed properly, by this I mean the elevation and distance of the raised and lowered portions of the bed. Any other recommendations are welcome too. The entire tub will be Rhino lined following these repairs.

    <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/album/20166966dHeoYctFbT>Here are the pics of the bed repair.</a> I used patch material that is probably the same as the JC Whitney panel... about a 20" square or something like that.

    I know... really have to post more pics. Time still eludes me. I'm posting these from a hotel room in Oakland, CA! When I get back it's two weeks of vacation and BLAZER RESTO TIME!

    Thanks,
    That is the exact spot mine is rotten. I am gonna go ahead and order the patches and see how well they line up.
