    So, not being able to afford some "fun projects" like bushings or U-joints for the Rover, today I decided to do something I've been putting off since I made this thing into a truck. Yes, the dreaded bed rail caps. No big deal until you figure it out ! Make patterns, buy some metal, cut and buff. This is what I started with and ended up with. Think it's too Gucci ? Always open for input on this project.....................

    I like the style but if you could roll the outside edge down just a bit I think it would look more complete.

    I think you could do it with some careful effort, a deadblow or rubber mallet and something hard like an anvil or a vice. Try a piece. i bet you could make it look pretty good.

    I like it. Always wanted a dual cab landy, gives me too many ideas.

    So this week I have done a little cosmetic improvement (in my opinion)to the truck.
    I rattle canned the roof silver to match the body. There was just too much black there
    for me. Comments are almost always welcome ! JD

    Thing is sweet!

    For the edge of that diamond plate, get a piece of round bar, weld a handle to it, and start whacking away with a flat-faced hammer. I prefer a steel face, but that will jack-up your diamond plate, your best best is a firm rubber, or a good dead-blow.
    If you can't fix it with a hammer, then you have an electrical problem.

    I beat those edges down with a rubber mallet and they look much better !
