Makeshift fix of rotting pickup bed

Did the repair yesterday. Should hold for a while anyway. Bed
rests on cross member so my repair is mainly to keep it from
lifting on bumps. Still need to brace it further as some flex at
sides of floor at front due to rotted out front bed cross member.

Bed was still flexing along the floor welds and bouncing down on bumps, so I had to beef it up--Hillbilly style:

Bed is rock solid now!
