Ok, so I finally have an update for you guys. The flatbed is 95% done, I still need to make the removable sides, and a mount on the back for a pintle hitch, of course I remembered that AFTER I painted it the flatbed consists of 1/4" square brass stock for the frame, 1/8" C-channel for the supports, 3/16"x3/8" balsa for the planks, 3/8" styrene angle to cap everything off, and 120 pins to mimic the screws what a pain that was, but i like the look.


The bed is just placed on the chassis for the pics, so it may be alittle un-level.


I made a truss to mount the shocks in-board so i didnt need to cut holes in the bed for the shocks to stick through.


I think I may leave the wood as is, and just have it wheather natually, i kind of like it.( don't mind the overspray on the wood, it has since been sanded off)









Heres a shot of the truss, keep in mind everything is in mockup,, it will be painted black and the screws with have nuts on them,



And here is a shot of the mounts, 2 per side, where 1/8"x1/4" rectangle will slide into, for the sides, so they will be removable,




Thats it for now, let me know what you think

I love it I cant believe how good its looks. How long did it take you to put all those pins in.

Thanks it really didnt take me that long, since the balsa is so soft, I simply just pushed them through. Though, my finger is still sore lol. The longest part was cutting the excess off the underside of the planks, without stabbing myself multiple times
