Brat bed fixing....
Posted 26 July 2003 - 05:27 PM
the very rear of the bed may be taken care of through "bobbing" it like Zap did, but the other areas, I would like to fix/cover, etc...
this brat is gonna be my main off-roader when it's done.
I have the gas tank out right now as it needed replaced...
I am contemplating drilling several "drain holes" in the bed, and putting a wood bed in...
had also thought about putting diamond plate aluminum in, but it's kind of pricey.....
another thought is to just clean up the spots, put rust converter/POR-15 on em, then rivet steel in over the spots, and get it Rhino lined....

For some reason I want to like the diamond plate firstoff. I don't like the wood bed unless you do it like old american iron trucks with the metal bed strips between the wood, rather than a cut plywood sheet. Finally, it seems the best idea of all is the rust treatment plus sheetmetal. Takes care of the problem of rust (except for your location in the US) for now and who knows if you did the DIY bedliner you might not even notice the patch spots. Add in a spare tire holder or other functional yet disguising feature (gas can holder, keg-o-rator) and noone notices. Plus, it's your offoroader soooooo...

I do have a spare tire holder to incorporate.
for the rollbar, I'm going to chop up/modify 2 Gen1 rollbars, so I can save my 2 Gen2 bars for my other Brats
