The Final Word
As you can see, even the best of us miss some minor details. By extending the wheeltubs downward, they grew wider and ended up covering up a portion of our compartment lids. This wasn't a big deal because we needed to do some additional patch work on the floor anyway. So, we just recut the lid and then welded the offending portion back to the floor. Essentially, all that was left now was to cap the rear portion of the bed where the tailgate skin met the inside panel and weld the whole bed together, permanently. We're still undecided if we'll take the time to grind down all of the welds and paint the inside of the bed or just wimp out and spray a bedliner inside. Stay tuned for more sheetmetal mods on our '67 in an upcoming issue of ST.
