    dont ask

    Any body ever replace a bed skin?
    Cutting wheel or *gulp* plasma cutter?
    Welding options?
    I tried searching but I guess im not useing the right keywords.
    I Guess this is my best option:
    Passenger bed skin
    The more I think about it the more I think ill just get somebody to do it. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    well im not sure why you posted up twice...but i believe you just cut the old one off, clamp the new one on and weld it up...sounds easy enough...but ill be replacing my whole bed instead of just the pieces..

    It was a accident. I thought i deleted my 1st post. I left out link for replacement part.

    hmmmm. I may look into that if its less cutting and not much more expensive. On the other side I was just going to get by with a patch pannel for here:
    Bad spot
    I very seriously doubt i can find that a complete bed in a yard somewhere.

    I havent seen a whole bed for sale (specificaly 73'-77' for that matter)Just the individual sides.
    Dont they change in 78 for folding rear seats?
