Just alittle work lately but steady work at that! Bulk heads have been dry fitted. Just waiting for armor bolts to arrive and I'll starts fastening things together. I will say its alot more fun building the bed than working on the track itself haha.

If you left the bolts in the bed and tried to take it apart, it would be more like working on the track.   ;)

Looking good!!

Paul Jacob's products are absolutely top notch!!! No one else makes better ammo lockers and reproduction parts hands down. These laser cut pieces bolt perfectly to original pieces. Ive had to do very very little hole reshaping to make them work.  So far, the passenger ammo locker is bolted down. Waiting on armor plates from the shop in town then I'll start bolting in the armor!  One step at a time.

Nice job Jon! It’s sure a lot more fun when you get to the point of bolting all the nice, clean parts together. Agree with you on Paul’s parts. Everything I’ve gotten from him has been perfect. Have fun!

Looking great.
Got the rear floor system back on mine. Getting ready to mount boxes and start on the side armor.

Not greasy or rusty....but still a BIT heavy.
