old truck upcycled into a car bed - Perry Hudson Attachments 3:32 AM (4 hours ago) to me Ever since I started building these truck beds I wanted them to look like what I remembered going down the road as a kid. I build a cabinet that goes in rear window with a gun rack , later on I started putting a mirror in it as well to give it depth and put off more light reflection from the dome reading light I put in. The tailgates are functional and there’s faux dual exhaust . Bed rails bolt right up to head and footboard for queen or king. Last but not least the LED lights can be operated by either a manual dimmer switch or a wireless key fob on a novelty key chain which is a detail customers love.
