You might want to take a look at this web site > 
http://www.chevytrucks.org/users/jeff/bedwood.htm.  Also, the vendors sell 
a book on redoing the bed wood.  I do not have a floor to go by either, but 
with the above web site, the book on bed wood, and using your cross 
members, it is not that hard to figure out where everything goes.  I am 
putting clear pine in mine as that was what was used originally.

Good luck,
