    I really need to do that on my truck... Did you wire-wheel it at all, or just paint over everything?

    I sprayed everything down with full strength simple green, scrubbed with a scrub brush and a wire brush and then rinsed everything off. The frame had hardly any flaking rust on it, that's what you want to remove.

    Thanks brotha! Got the bed finished before work today. Take a look at how nice the bed looked before I painted it, no rust at all.

    Got the body mounts in from Amazon today, might start that tomorrow.

    That's the plan. I think I may attempt to spray the bottom of the cab, painting is going to get super messy either globs of paint dipping on me.

    Decided to pull the engine haha. Should give me time to clean the engine bay up while I wait to build the new engine. The block is in storage at the machine shop.
