    Thanks for the measurements I was looking at the 35-36 bed earlier and the fender bead kinda has tear drop shape to it so I think I can fabricate a new bead to follow the 32-34 fender but I just can't tell 100% until I have the fenders to work with.

    This is probably a long shot but does anyone have pictures of 32-34 trucks with a 35-36 bed surely I'm not the first person to try this.

    no pics worth looking at. my pu had a shortened 35/6 bed on it. wheel wells didn't line up, but the bed was cheap an I was a high school student. I made plywood panels to cover the incorrect lines and then put the proper fenders on--but again that probably doesn't help

    You're probably right, and don't call me Shirley

    The Mack Hills catalog has diaphragms/side shots with measurements that might help you in converting your box. I never looked on line but it might be there.

    Just a small update this is the first part of my exhaust, I started with having some having some stainless steel cut outs and flanges made on the water jet at Midwest machine. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1421609650.774102.jpg

    Here's a shot with both sides fitted and tacked in place. This is the first exhaust system I've fabricated and I have to say its extremely difficult to get both sides symmetrical but I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out. That's all for now more updates coming soon. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1421611554.259977.jpg

    As some of you know I've been in search of a drives side door for almost a year, I just happen to see that Chris Davenport at Salt Flats Speed Shop was working on a 32 truck on his Instagram account so I sent him a comment asking if he had any extra doors for sale, he replied back saying a customer of his had a whole cab with both door for a 1000$ so a few days later I bought the cab. Fast forward a few weeks work slowed down and I was able to make the 2000 mile round trip for amarillo to Salt Lake City to pick up the cab. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1421613622.824786.jpg

    While I was there I thought it would be a good opportunity to have Chris punch out some louvers on my hood I originally wanted four rows but Chris showed me pictures of his sedan with 6 rows and I really like how it looked so that's what I went with.

    Great looking work. Our little 32 PU won't be anywhere near as nice as this.
    Just a suggestion with the exhaust cotton reel hangers ,how about tipping them 90degrees so the cotton reel is getting down weight rather than side ways or vertical pull.

    Thanks for the input I have never done exhaust before and wasn't quite sure how to go about building the hangers. After everything was tacked into place I loosened the flange on the header and gave it a good wiggle to simulate motor movement, there's plenty of side to side movement but once I start the motor again I'll give it a good rev to make sure everything is working properly.

    No it just over time they tend to give out when not in a compression position.
