Started my Ute project

Ditched the dented rusty bed to build a flat bed. Going the lowered mini truck way like we did back once upon a time.

I was about to say the lowered flatbed looks good but I want to know about that Miata.

What's the weight of the flat-bed frame vs the OEM bed? Not actual weight, but does it already feel heavier/lighter?
Are you going with wood top?

Going all metal, smooth top.
I think it will turn out lighter than with the bed.
I'll see how it feels when I get it on the road in a few days and let everyone know.
