Cutting down a ’67-’72 the right way
If you’re in the market for a new C-10, you’re going to hit a harsh reality: Short beds ain’t cheap. If you find one that is, it might have a shotgun hole through the headliner, or maybe it’s missing the bed entirely. Either way, if you’re looking for a good deal, you might want to consider a long bed. After all, you can always cut it down.
Kyle at Metalox Fab has made his living doing just that for loyal customers from all across North America for the past few years. The resulting beds have a tiny scar down the front and back, and sometimes not even that. He knows these trucks so well that the job is done like a surgeon—clean and perfect.
We were fortunate enough to spend some time with him while he cut down a 1969 Chevrolet C-10 long bed. By the time he was done a few days later, the truck was not only 20 inches shorter, but it looked a ton better, too.
