Wood bed rails for 80 to 83 J10 Sportside

Headhoncho, (JR) and I have been talking about the wood bed rails for the 1980 to 1983 J10 Sportsides since I started the Restoration of "Dad's J10".

We made a deal, that after I had the truck on the road, he would send me the original parts he had for his 1980 Sportside.

About three months ago, he mailed me the parts.



The parts were weathered badly, but are still good patterns.

I had hoped to start this project earlier, ten weeks ago, I had a total knee replacement, and had hoped I could sit in the shop and work on this project, but alas, I got started this week.

The rails are white oak, from what we have researched, stained golden oak, with a clear finish.

Last Thursday we picked up wood to make two sets, in the rough, and yesterday, we planed it to thickness.



1/2" for the "headboard", 1 5/16" and for the rails.



Had to glue boards together to get over 2 1/2" to make the twelve bed standards.

I still have to glue up boards to make the curved trim on the head board.



It feels good to have wood chips in the shop again, instead of paint chips.

The finish is going to take some more research, I am thinking of Marine finish, with an epoxy sealer, but the jury is still out. Best case, three years they will require a coat of Spar varnish if left on the truck outdoors.

More to come...

Very nice. Can I make a suggestion on the finish. A friend of mine needed to refinish some wood doors at his house. His brother did automotive painting and he asked his brother about painting his stained doors with an automotive clear coat. His brother said no at first but made a few phone calls and one of his paint suppliers said it could and had been done on wood doors with no cracking. They had used the flex additive that is mixed in the paint when painting plastic car bumpers. My friends doors looked like the day they were clear coated eight years later,then Katrina came and everything was gone. Just some food for thought. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I considered making some from the poly boards used for decking.

Looking good! Hope the knee surgery went well.

I'll bring my wife down and leave her as your apprentice but I would be worried she'll never want to come back home after seeing your shop.

JR

LOL JR,

My wife used to be my sander, I taught her what to look for, and she made the finish perfect. She Would not help with the truck paint sanding though. (She seems to only sand what she wants for the house!)

My shop is a single car garage, it has a lot of tools but very little room.

I cannot work every day, but I hope to have more pictures for you this weekend.

Today I cut out twelve standards that will fit in the stake bed holes.
(two sets)



Still a lot to cut, the angle of the bed side, and make them fit the stake bed holes.



These hold the head board below the rear window. (left and right handed)

Nice work

Are you going make a jig for a router to shape the boards for the
stake bed holes.

LOL, I think I have envisioned four different ways to do that part.

Jig and router
Dado head cross ways
Dado head long ways and chisel
band saw

I am sure there are other ways, That is the time consuming part figuring out how to...

The top of the bed rails have are 2 3/4" wide, the top is around a two inch radius. Any ideas of how to mill this? With what I have to work with, looks like a good sharp hand plane is my option.

That radius would be easy on a tablesaw

I made this radius on this corner column with a tablesaw.
Then just a little sanding.



Here are more photos of the cabinet. ( I didn't want to hijack your thread)

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

Hey MIB,

I am jealous of your wood shop!

I taught Industrial Arts and had fully equipped shops but now I am working out of a one car garage.

Very nice work, I looked at all your pictures.

I was thinking of two or three passes on each side with the table saw and then planing. My radius is no where near yours. I plan to drill the mounting holes while the rails are square, use the existing bed rail for a template. I will be able to attach it to the bench for final trimming and sanding. I might just use the hand plane, it will take longer but the hand tools and carving chisels have become such fun the older I get.

Again Very nice. Prissy! LOL.

And as for you Sirhill, NO! If you ever get that SportSide Heep of yours done, well then maybe... You don't think enough of your J10 to even include it in your Signature!

I will not forget you Brother.

No doubt.

I just got the windshield back in it yesterday & am getting there. Went in a different direction on the back bumper & am really happy with the results . I'm thinking about putting the Honcho stripes on it but the wood would rock. I loved the Honchos & the dodges with the wood I have no idea why but I think it's the cat's meow. Right now i'm working on modifying a roll bar to mimic the factiory one since they can be had. Not meaning to hijack my friend but the would is making me slobber all over the keyboard.



Not mine

If you need help making jigs or templates. just send me some drawings or
Acad files.

Jigs make it alot safer around router bits and blades

Thanks MIB!

I do appreciate the offer! I am pretty good at making jigs, again, just need to decide how I am going to do the procedure.

I will make a set of Cad drawings once I have the project done.

Thanks,
WH

The standards are all roughed out, still some chisel work, but they fit very nicely.



Cut out one of the headboards.



The headboard standards will have to be tapered and rounded at the top once the curved trim is made and installed.



Coming together slowly.

You realize if you put those beauties on, you're gonna have to get the stripe kit…..

Nice work, WH.

Yes Brad,

I have considered that after the wood the stripes will be next...

I can see Dad shaking his fist at me!

LOL

I never saw the stake bed on the J10. The picture from Rick was an awesome truck with that wood bed trim.

Great work WH! Glad you are back to working in the garage. I hope you are up to turkey as well.
