Ok so bed was just put on and no its not done yet. Just a few pics of it coming together. As you can see the bed will look like nothin happened when done. That one pic is not a good one but also has custom exhaust trick mounts. All countered and on rubber bushings. Bed is going to Beverly Hills to finish the plastic surgery.

In that one pic you get a taste of what he works on normally. That is the first Pegaso on race day. worth more then all Datsuns combined. He has a lot of very very exotic cars there but I don't take pics out of respect.

So very glad to see you’re tucking everything in underneath without flares. I thought I heard something about flares earlier. 

Looking great!

He's flaring it, subtly.  Look at the bed cut w/shim

Aha. Now I see it after looking closer. That is a clever (and difficult) way to clear that rubber. Love it! That’s more like a subtle widebody bod. Very cool

If you look close down the bed you will see it does not bulge out at all. And these trucks the bed is mounted slightly crooked. We are fixing all that plus we are tucking the bed closer to the cab to It will be subtle and trick there is more going on that's being done.

Great way to accomplish that. Simple and elegant.

Looks great Mr Tanker.  I slid my bed closer to my 520 cab when my brother and I put the 720 chassis under the 520.

I might have gone too close, we will see.

He's also giving it just a slight bit of negative camber for more clearance...

 

It'll be similar as shown below.
