    I need to replace the entire bed area and rear footwells of my K5(as you can tell by my username). Do I have to buy the corregated bed area, at $80 a piece(3 required to do the entire bed). Has anyone just pust in some flat 14-18 gauge steel? Same questions for the body supports?? Thanks in advance!

    That would work just fine, just make sure to weld on some rails under it for support or you will be getting large popping noises when the body flexes. As for the wheel wels I guess you could use the bottom of a 45 gal drum cut in half. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
