   It's been a while, but my new bed sides and front panel (repo), fenders 
and splash aprons went to the body shop in March.  I picked my shop by word 
of mouth and by work he has done I have seen.  (He is also the guy who paints 
all of Eddie Hills drag racing equipment and cars).  I am going back to black 
(original color) and knew I was not good enough at bodywork for black.  I got 
the bed back yesterday, and it was worth the wait!  The metal is straight and 
smooth and the paint is beautiful.  It looks about three feet deep!  Next 
week the front end sheetmetal goes in and last will be the cab. I am piecing 
it to the body shop to spread out the expense and the shop used it as fill-in 
work between large jobs.  I can now get busy on the bed wood and rebuild the 
entire front suspension while the sheet metal is off.
