This is my first post here and I've begun work on my own V3000S and I'm collecting information on the bed which is non-existent on my truck. I've found the very helpful blueprints on one of the other threads but they do not answer one question in particular. Is the bed floor composed of lengthwise planking with the seams covered by typical metal strips? Or is it built another way? Photos would be most helpful.
Attached are some photos of my V3000s 1944, the bed is original. I have also put up drawings done by a friend who built one, he took the dimensions from the original bed which was rotten. Hope this helps.
