To be continued, tool boxes next to come.

After a year time has come, remove, refinish, redesign time.

new paint, minor changes

new battery box for amps

milled 2×8 2x10s for bed edges and new fenders. All full 1″ thick lumber, all box boards are home made tongue and groove clamped and glued with Tightbond III and all grooves sealed with 5200 marine caulk. I mixed white rustoleum with Thompsons clear water sealer for the finish.

Needed a front bumper. used all factory bolts and mounts. Needed stereo, designed 1.3 cu. ft. sealed 12″ sub woofer box, nine speakers three amps. Couple ham radios keep me company and help with emergency communications if needed.

took many tools to build.

had to convince boards to lay down flat with some screws & 5200 marine caulk, it worked.

large overlay Euro Hinges worked great.

narrow front box accepts 6′ levels as planned.
