This should be a beaut little truck. Most of these J1 Bedfords seem to have trays on them, the ute body is great. Not mine but if it was first thing I would do would be to cut 6 inches out of the dually rear guards and bring them in to the right place for singles.

Shame to waste a nice pair of rear guards though. Maybe someone would trade them for a pair of narrower guards and then two people gain from the deal. Either that or fit duallies, or some m u c h wider rims on the rear??? :unsure:

Unfortunately I didn’t get the bed with the truck.
At the time, I didn’t think it was what I wanted, so the seller knocked $1000 off the price & kept the bed.
But agree PDU & Lang swapping or cutting those guards down would tidy it up.
They were only fibreglass.

Little bit of rust here & there, but overall I’m quite happy.

At the end of the day the small amount of extra time to bag n tag saves a heap of time down the track. Keep body parts together and then mechanical parts away from the body parts.
I remember we stripped an old Suzuki LJ80 completely apart to have a bare chhassis sitting on the deck. I spent a heap of time labelling the wiring harness as I knew it would be my job to refit it. Glad I did and when we fitted a fibre glass reproduction Jeep body back onto the chassis the wiring went straight back to everything it had to and that job took a full morning to from running and clipping it all back into place both to the engine and the dash board. The lights were done after painting was finished.
Does appear to have any bad rust in your project, it looks quite clean with a couple of minor spots at the nottom of the "A" pillars.

I tend to throw everything in a bucket as I usually modify the vehicle so much very little goes back on!

I remember back in my Insurance days Perfect Auto Bodyworks (the Sydney Mercedes repairer) threw out all nuts and bolts and used new ones when repairing a vehicle.

Their annual profit on nuts and bolts the Insurers paid for (and you the Insuring Public) would keep a few of us in style for years/

Squeezed in a little bit of truck time today.
Still waiting for my paint stripper to be delivered.
Picked up one of those ‘chain’ tyre storage thingies.
Needed shortening & move the hub locations.
