Time to do the rear.. 

I've chosen a different approach than many others have. Normally I've seen people get a completer floor for the cabin, welding the truck bed onto it and putting the cabin and front onto it afterwards. 

Being in Denmark ment that my panel-pusher couldn't supply me with an entire floor pan, which is why I kept the tunnel while replacing the floor sides only (see previous posts).

I got the entire rear end including the panel between the cabin and bed. My idea was to stiffen around the B-posts, cut away all of the truck bed an then replace everything starting with the bed pan itself.

The small gap shoving the floor bed and B-post isn't connected:

Starting off by removing the temporary supports from earlier and finishing the heelboard weldings. Seen in the picture above.

Also refurbishing the panel supporting the front of the bed. Putting that one in first:

Looks sooo simple. Took forever...
