I am going to build a truck bed for my 1922 Roadster and am just seeking some ideas/pictures from those of you who have done this. I don't want to use the vendor kit because I want the bed to be longer (and hopefully wider) than what those offer. I also would love to: 1) see some different ways of dealing with the rear fender brackets, 2) see different ways of creating a "hatch" so I can still get to the battery, and 3) see options for mounting the spare tire and lights under the new bed. I have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do but appreciate any info and ideas in case there is something I'm not taking into consideration (which is likely). Thanks in advance.

Watch the length the first one I made I thought 5'10" would be O.K. waaayyy too long!

This was before I shortened it by 14" but I decided to get to the battery by making it a dump bed Mark Strange made his a dump bed too :-) Aren't Ideas fun?

One way to provide access to the battery is to build a tilt bed - I can't take credit for mine, it came to me that way from the shop that did the restoration for the previous owner. The rear fender brackets attach to some fabricated brackets that bolt to the 4x4s on top of the frame rails, allowing the bed to tilt without disturbing the rear fenders. :-)

Thanks everyone for your help. Now I'm off to find some hardware.
