Bed access panel modification
Hi all, I have a 65 Ranchero and I was thinking of customizing the bed access panel. I want to remove the screws and make it open either with struts or an electric lift. I would probably make a new access panel with a lightweight metal frame and a flat piece of aluminum. Anyone done this, or have suggestions? I have a pretty good picture in my head, but not sure how to hinge it.
I don't know how useful it would be since accessing whatever is in there would still require climbing into the bed. I just think it would be cool.
