The work day ended early on Monday, so I took advantage of the extra time and decent weather to finish up the bed. Got underneath to tighten up all the hardware that holds the metal strips in place, attached the fenders and topped it off with the tailgate. As I was tightening up the new tailgate hinges, a couple that walks by the house regularly stopped to admire the truck.
Husband: "Are you going to fully restore and paint it?"
Me: "That's the plan, one of these days."
Husband: "Whoa, that's gonna look awesome."
Me: (with a smile) "I think it looks awesome right now!"
