Yup, more like 80 miles or so...
But once you cross the state line, the amount of salt, calcium chloride, ect. goes up about 7 times what KY. uses...

Not saying you CAN'T find a floor in a tub,
I'm saying there aren't any around my area that I know of...

I can understand that,TR.
But, I'd bet that "Patches" still has that area intact; wherever she is.

I just ended up fabricating a sheet plate with a jig saw, drilling some holes for #12 screws and a single bolt. I needed the bolt so I connect both the ground for the electric fuel pump and sender unit. I cut up an old rubber kick ball to make a gasket to go between the plate and the bed. Thanks for the ideas guys

You know....this brings up a good point....accessing the gas tank is a PIA....especially mine...I made a new shield out of 10g steel....it's heavy....

So....what is to prevent someone from making the entire floor over the tank removeable? And, yes, it could even be made out of stainless.....

BTW guys.....I'll be showing off my new bumper/tire rack/rack in a few days....as soon as it gets back from the powder coat shop...

You Ky. guys don't use nearly the salt, chloride, ect. we do in Indiana,
And my area in particular just HOSES everything down every chance they get!

It seems to be a game to them around here if every vehicle doesn't have an inch of dried salt/corrosion causing crap stuck to every square inch of our vehicles!

I wash my daily driver about every week in the winter, and within ONE DAY it's usually covered with salt again,
And this goes on from right after Thanksgiving to well into March and April!

They were still throwing salt & sand around here in late March this year, and we really didn't have much of a winter at all!

I don't know how true it is,
But I'm told if the streets/highway department doesn't use up all it's budget one year, they loose that much money out of the budget for the next year,
So they throw the stuff/ use up the overtime allowances no matter if we need it or not...

(Government, go figure! )
