Re: SkinnyG's '61 Apache

Bed sides.

There is quite a bit of corrosion where the fenders mounted (and subsequently rusted the fender flanges). I'm curious if the bed was assembled bare and then primed and painted, or primed first. Nevertheless, they will be epoxy primed at a minimum when I'm done.

Left side with no patches:

Right side with patches, all TIG welded so as to be very malleable:

1961 Apache: Shortboxed, pancake, step-notch, air-ride, boosted-LS
1977 Silverado: The Daily - shortboxed & dropped, potato-potato
V8 Pontiac Firefly (Chevy Sprint): The ultimate engine swap: 5.7lbs in a 1lb bag
Lotus Super 7 Replica: Scratch-built street-legal rollerskate
