Well, I finally got a deck on this thing! The trailer flooring screws I got were just the thing. I put all the boards in place, then drilled holes right through the wood and steel, zipped the screws in, and done!

Thanks guys! I'm hoping I'll have a chance to use it for something other than holding snow off the ground soon. Still have to build some ramps for it, but still has lots of uses without ramps as well.

well done.  Now put a car or tractor on it and take a picture!
Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

I didn't get the tractor on it yet, but took it for it's first drive. Had to take it to get inspected, so now it's road legal! Good timing too, might be soon picking up some 73-87 chevy parts for an upcoming project!!

For anyone else that lives in a place that salts and sands the roads in the winter, the poor state of my truck won't be a surprise to you :(

That looks great.

Is that dirt on the jimmy or dents?

All dirt. It's above freezing today, so all the road sand and water make everything a real nice mess.
