Re: Glassworks Tundra Bedside Installation
Hey Karma. My sides and fenders arrived from Adv Fiberglass. Nicely made! I've never seen a vid of anyone doing a 1st Gen Tundra bedside. Lots of other trucks, but every one requires different metal cutting techniques. I'm sure the process is more dependent on the brand bed you are working on than the brand of the new bedside. I'm going to try to leave the rail for starters, but lots has to come off at the tail light and gate area to make things work. My gate already has little clearance so I'm going to have to strip as much of the side metal off as I can and just leave the supports inside the tail light opening. Looks like the rear will probably be the worst.
The new bedside has a nice wide (2") wrap around on the front. I hope to hide the bolts behind the cab, rather than on the side as I have seen some done. Thanks for the tips. I'm going to remove a little at a time, slowly, to make it work. Hard to put stuff back once it's cut LOL.
