    Good grief, I didn't think it could get any better and it did! It's becoming the Sultans car hauling yacht.

    I don't think anyone has used 'stunning' yet, so I will. Truly a stunning build. Not sure my wife would approve of me spending $$ on airfare to come see it in person, but I'd like to.

    Fantastic job!
     
  9. ...amazing!...do you actually plan on hauling anything?

    I really like the finger joint detail. I didn't realize you had to clear the edging after it was installed on the bed. How do you reach behind the cab?

    It looks great.
     
  14. have to fill the screw holes and sand it down so it looks like one piece
    will apply the clear with a brush there is abouth 2'' behind the cab.

    Awesome build! I travel past Zaandam a couple of times a week (my girl lives in Enkhuizen). Are you visiting any shows this year with the hauler?

    I like the graphics you've picked. Now, where have I seen that layout before? ;) I can't tell you how much I like this build, and am sorta sorry to see you wrapping it up (completely selfish of me), it's been fun watching it come together, the truck is a knockout!

    Sander,

    I have an observation about your D-rings. It looks like the D-rings are bolted to the outer board with the outer board bolted to the bedframe. The number of bolts that secure the outer board is a lot less than the number of bolts that are used to secure the D-rings. Or are the D-rings bolted to the frame below? I am a bit worried about the strength your construction.

    Greetings from an admirer from the Netherlands
     
  25. I think he has it covered with the frame member at the outside edge of the bed. Front and rear tie-downs are on the longitudinal frame rails.

    You're new here, so I'll just say "Fear Not old' Boy"

    This is one builder who has a very good grasp of the job at hand! :cool:
     
  27. ok its been awhile but had not much to show lately.
    did a lot of small things and detail work, and fixed the steeringbox leak.

    removed the masking tape of the first attempt, I didnt had the right tape
    and could'nt get it straight enough.
    the second try with the right fine line tape worked way better.

    also applied sound absorbing material on the inside of the side panels.
