You're still not getting it Steve. The fenderwells need to be moved forward, not rearward. The Camper Special's fenderwells are 7 inches farther rearward than a normal 8 foot or 6.5 foot bed. Whether one is building a regular 8 foot bed or a 6.5 foot bed, the fenderwells on the AMT Camper Special bed must be moved forward to be correct.
Your right Roger, I'm not gett'n it. I can see you need to move the openings forward 7" if you want to make a standard 8' bed.
Say you've done that. Now you have a standard bed with the openings in the correct place. ,,
IF you want to make a shortbed you need to take 12" out of the front of the bed ,,OK,,
Now you also need to take 6" from the back of the bed.
I just don't see the need to move the openings back if you're just gonna cut most of the move back out of it after you're done.
