Have you though about making the bed look more "used" or dirty?
Tow-trucks never stay looking that clean for very long.......

Other than that, totally awesome! :D

A guy on Facebook was making them. The group is I'm no better than you. I'm not sure if he is still making them. I have been trying to get a couple more of them.

If you could cover both sides of the piece you have now in diamond plate I think that would look better.

Does not have to be that particular piece, just I think the diamond plate look needs to be there.
