So after removing the old bedliner I had a bit of an elbow injury, so I took a break. It is a slow project right? Just finishing up by replacing the rot on the "new" tub. Needs reinforcing where the seats bolt on and where the seat belts bolt on. Using 1/4" steel for seat belt mounts to be safe. My buddy gave me floor panels and is welding them in for me, I'm unfortunately inexperienced in that department, but ready to self educate for future maintenance.
I'm currently selling off extra parts on craigslist to fund the new wheels and tires, and we should be painting and bedlining next week, so we're almost to the end
Here's a pic of my buddies handywork.
It's not done yet, still more welding and grinding, then por15 and bedlinng. The rust wasn't that bad but we figured we may as well use as much of the floor panels as we can rather than waste them. Going to use the seam sealer on it too before hand.
