I appreciate the google link! That has definitely given me some ideas.
I don't know if I said it before, but I plan on pulling the truck into my work's shop this evening and taking a look at it this weekend. I should be able to make a plan from there.
I do have a friend that has a full size pickup truck with an 8' bed that he was willing to give me. That was his plan anyhow. I just don't know how far I want to get into body paneling, at least at this point.
I'll definitely have more photos after this weekend.
