I thought this one looks a bit more interesting/better than most flat decks

 

Except it's not a flat deck.

Small update...

Been trying to resist the temptation to just bolt the proper bed back on and be done with all this messing about, especially as we're moving house soon & I'm making the truck less useful.

Never mind, I resisted. Added some lights and stuff.

Cut some steel up for the crosspieces, going to make a perimeter frame out of 2" angle and fill it with scaff boards.

This width will keep it legal (just) with the 33 x 12.5's,  but I may still chop a bit off as the front ones stick out anyway.

Also, was watching a "Columbo" earlier from 1991.

/ fancy SR5 for fred.

Well, that's me being a big fat liar. Next few months, my foot.

Got one on me over the past couple of days & decided to go full Waltons spec.

Pleased.

Also,we may have a new contender for the paint. Bit struck by this from Chevy's 1972 range.

Funnily enough, my mate who built a Discovery tipper offered to do the same for me. 

TBH I think that picture is about the angle where my chassis would snap in half.

Light duties from now on.

Ooh, update ?

Nah, clickbait.

Was tidying stuff out at my dads & found an aerial I had on loads of cars back in London. I probably bought it in about 86 as it was on my Imps. It also lived on two Granadas, the Consul, at least two Cortinas and ultimately, for that period of my life, the Marina I used as a getaway car when I headed for Wales. That got scrapped coz I had to crash that car,  it but I kept the twig 'safe'in a damp box in a rat infested shed.

Spent time messing about with it today and now it lives again on the Hilux.
