Kev, can you take a close up image of the following areas on your pickup please? (I assume your load bed floor is OG)

Got one of the last few repairs to sort out and I need to weld up the bulkhead. From what's left of the joint it looks like the load bed floor went behind the vertical bulkhead. There appears to be three thickness of metal so it it like this:

Image

With the vertical bulkhead panel on the outside and a joggle in the profile. (think it makes sense to be like that so water running down the bulkhead doesn't run into the lap joint

Or is as others suggested that the load floor is on the outside? ie like this
