    My pickup is finally at the painters so I need to line up a few of the last purchases for the project.
    Bedwoodandparts.com looks to have everything I need for the original bed.
    Or is there better sources?

    I have no idea where to start to buy the wide whites for my 15" (5" & 6"wide) steel wheels.
    The car won't meet the criteria as traditional so radials are fine.
    What are my possibilities?

  3. I want to give Jeff Major and Bed Wood a Giant Thumbs up I put there kit in my Dodge 6 years ago. It's been Great and when I had questions during the ordering process I was able to talk directly with Jeff, not to many companies were you call and talk to the owner! Great Service Highly Recomended!

    For the bed in the 52 GMC I had some flawless red oak planks I acquired a few years back so a little triming and some very expensive stain sealer that has been on for summer winter that worked great and I made my own steel strips. Kits suck. Tools and knowledge are cheaper.

  6. The fellow that previously owned my El Camino laid out the bed in ASH wood then lightly tinted the polyurethane with blue that matched the car.
    Draws a lot of positive comments

    I had hoped to get some feedback on some of the whitewalls Hambers have used, good or bad.

    Here's how it went to the body shop.
    I lengthened frame 5 inches and the body 3 inches in the doors and 2 inches in the side panels.
