    Nice work BTW. I didn't see any picts of the general overview of the body when it was done. Do you have some of those? If you can't resize them send, them to me as an email again and I'll post them for you. Take a look at this thread, it should give you an idea how to make the picts smaller.

    Lanceman,
    as you may have noticed, I have a serious lack of trust of people who show up on the internet.

    Very nice work on your service body.

    Default Thanks DSW!

    Thank you for doing that. Like I said, I'm not that computer savy.

    Thank you, Jeff. I guess some people are only looking to profit. I'm not a welder buy trade. I do love welding and love to share and look and projects.

    Jeff for someone who isn't a professional welder I'd say that's super. What do you usually do?

    Went back and took another look at the picts after you posted this. The reason you used a skin over frame design suddenly made sense to me. This is opposed to the skin being the structure as it is in my truck.

    I toyed around with the idea of building or modifying a body to fit my old truck, but lack the space build it and the equipment to set it once built. Lot of time and effort into that body of yours but you got what you wanted I hope.

    Any idea how much time you have in building it? How much in materials? Just curious to compare it with what I paid to have mine custom built.

    Default Cost of materials

    I spent $5K in metal. Payed $1600 for a sheet metal company to supply and break the 14 ga. around the door and make the dip rails for me. I went though about 50 lbs. of wire and 4 100 cf. bottles of mig mix.

    I looked at those pictures again and I am impressed with the thought given to the layout.
    The thing that I wonder about is those blue bins...If they were in my truck, they would all be in a pile in the bottom of the compartment You must have smooth driving conditions.

    Let's see the complete unit!

    Default Akro Bins

    These bin hold stuff pretty good. I do put some of the small parts in bags.
