Crazy ass times. Covid, layoffs at work, then I just took over a new team of about 40 engineers that need some attention, and my oldest daughter is moving out this week...my point? Sometimes these projects get love and attention and sometimes they don't...

That's why my goal is get it driving, not get it perfect, otherwise it may never get done.

Interestingly enough, I found one piece of pristine metal while I cut out the rest of the floor and drilled out all the spot welds in the support.

Looks like you are getting some good work done there. Where did you get the replacement sheet metal from?

I've been so slammed I just walk by my truck and hang my head in shame ...but then I decided that instead I should find a motivating theme song so that if I get busy for awhile I can just listen to the song and get back in it.

What could a good theme song be I wondered and then Pandora rotated this on and I knew I'd found the song I needed.

Hey,

I have a dumb question. There's a support channel that runs underneath the rear bed. Between that support channel and the frame there are two pieces of what look like thick burlap. These two pieces are held in my little wire clips. What do you folks replace those with?

The energy suspension body mount kit comes with some rubber pieces that replace the burlap. You could probably just use some 3/16" rubber in it's place if you didn't need the entire mount kit.
