One of the things people really seem to notice about classic pickups is the bed wood. If you have a bed that’s nicely finished with stained wood and new strips (the pieces between the wood), you’re going to get a lot of compliments.

Replacing the bed wood in a rotted-out old truck isn’t as easy as it may seem. Yet, after you’ve done it a time or three, it starts to make sense. If you’re considering doing yours for the first time, you should follow along with us as we work on this ’64 Chevy shortbed Fleetside pickup, and make notes of the helpful hints.
