first attempt at getting the bed to actually lift on its own power. Gonna throw my back out if I keep lifting it up n down myself lol. I did a 2:1 clamshell out of stuff I had around the shop, some xj trailing arms and some random 1x2.5 rec tubing that had holes every few inches. I pie cut and filled in the missing wedges on each leg to give them separation after the pivot for the bag. It looks cool having the bag kinda floaty and fills the gap I'm saving for the actual zrack n hydraulics more interestingly. I'm not happy with how much lift I'm getting so I'm gonna play with it some more b4 I make nicer looking. I want at least 15 degrees more tilt.

got the rest of the main bed pieces cut out of 16ga sheet and fitted today. Used an old 4link bar to taco the sheet metal over to do the curved edge of the front fillers. Then cut up the middle of the spine to make two rounded edge pieces. In the pic it shows one half tacked to the bar to do final fit to match the trailer fenders sloped inner edge... still gonna do fillers where the lift arms protrude a little and access doors to inner chambers in the front portion of the fender boxes just not sure how I want them to look or open yet.

Was down for the count with some crazy pneumonia for a couple weeks but I'm all good and back on my projects now got my rhode fab lca triangulation brackets for a great deal so I made the lca's today. I had 240sx adjustable track arms that came in my kit that I used on the rear. They made great adjustable additions so I can mess with caster angle a little more. Jigged up and cut the boring stock arms off the clutch and brake pedals to do something more appealing but not sure what yet...

made custom legs for my pedals out of 3/16 plate cut by hand as again i don't have access to the plasma table I used to. I went with slots for the accent down the length just for another touch. they sucked to cut but worth, it I think they look cool.
