    Now that is cool! I've never seen a conversion quite like that, using the original bedsides. Your Dad is lucky to have you. Do you live close by to him? Both my sons live too far away to be of assistance when I need them.

    Your credit score has more to do with the type of your available credit, than your card balance. For example, using an equity line to pay off a credit card, then closing said account will make your score go up. You end up with the same amount of debt, but it's now deemed a better quality of debt, backed by real estate, and if you're using the standard deduction, has no tax implications.

    One thing about a home equity loan you should know: don’t refi your mortgage to get a home equity loan unless you first consider the tax implications. You lose the mortgage interest deduction on your federal taxes with any refi of a home or secondary home.

    Sorry for slow response. You forgot to tag me in the reply.

    Yeah, I have done the same kind of bed on one of my trucks too. I made mine a little different, but same kind of re-use of the bedsides. I incorporated the tool box vs Dad's where it is stand alone. Also used my original tail lights and made a storage area under the rear part of the bed.

    I live right next door. I bought the place so I could help Mom and Dad stay in their place. They live on 9 acres and the house is old. They can't afford to pay for help on about anything.

    @Wsidr1
    I can’t stand wasted space, so naturally, a creation such as your flatbeds is appealing.
    I applaud your sense of responsibility to your father! My own family has spread to the winds, the all too familiar “wanna be on my own” syndrome. Nobody expresses even a mild interest in my lucrative business, which will be sold when I’m gone.
    Your father is a lucky man, and you are most welcome to post in my 80+ thread in his stead!
    Alan

    Regardless, get yourself a RFID protected wallet, to thwart scanners. We were both scanned at a local restaurant, cards were never out of our wallets. Our accounts were locked, and a fake email appeared next day, telling us to "verify" our pin to unlock. Instead, went to our bank, insisted on new cards. The bank's new-ish manager didn't really want to.. but I can be very persuasive.

    Especially when I informed her that there are databases of every possible pin number combination they can run your card number against, until they get a hit. Then our accounts would be emptied automatically. I was surprised she didn't know that.

    I wonder, I have a couple dark mylar covers intended to block windshield traffic signal devices. Would those work to block card scanners?

    I wouldn't bet on it. These criminals are sophisticated. Once they clean out your account, they'll sell off your info to the highest bidder. Once it's out, it's worldwide.
