Ok, now coat the inside bottom of the bed with asphalt residue and do the same to the bottom of the tailgate area.  😁  That's nice work!  Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful truck Tom!  You must have an assembly line like old Henry had, with all them squirrels hanging around. 

I am particularly interested in how the bed went together. Did you have any problems or have any tricks that will help me?

I have picked up a couple of these beds and a couple of the matching trailers over the years. I have a huge (for me) project I am gearing up for. My father in law drives a T800 with a bed like this, and trailer. I have the AMT T600, the resin T800 kit, and this bed and matching trailer. His first one was a '96, the one I took lots of pics of was his 2011, and he currently is in a 2017. Before the Kenworth, he was in a '83 Mack with the same box and trailer, hence the reason I have two beds and two trailers. I  should post a pic or two in discussion and show what I have collected,  so you all can let me know what else I need to get.
