As I continue to body work my 1 ton (I hate sanding!) I have begun to make a plan that will hopefully free up some cash to go towards seals and glass for the 1 ton.

Last weekend I disassembled my 1/2 ton box which has seen better days. Not super rough but not nice either. When I began to build a box for the 1 ton a couple summers ago, I also ordered and bent steel for a 1/2 ton box. Well, I began fabrication on the left side and front panel this weekend. I love working with fresh steel and knowing that everything will be straight, painted underneath and brand new!

Once complete, I will reassemble the old box loosely and hope to sell it and put the money towards the 1 ton completion. I will post pics as I progress.

Last couple days' progress. I have the front panel tacked together, the fender holes drilled, the stake pockets painted on the inside and the mounting surface weld-through primered. Going very well. I will next cut out the RH side frame kick up and then spot weld the pockets on.

Today I sanded on the 1 ton box and then shot another coat of primer. This afternoon I cut out the 1/2 ton frame kick up, welded the stake pockets on and then cleaned up. Pretty good day.
