I took the bed off my truck yesterday today i am grinding off bed rails and using wire wheel to get rust off frame. My bed is kind of bowed in the middle of bed looks like something heavy was put there is there anything I can do to make straight again. Next step will be welding new bed rails on. Also while I was taking bed off I had to use torch to heat up bed bolts and when I did this I melted some wires next to fuel tank that were strapped to frame its a big bundle of wires where would I get new wires or could a use wire connects and heat shrink or electrical tape to fix it or will that eventually come back to bite because once bed is on again will not be able to get to very easily. Also planning on doing the hutch and harpoon mod without spending to much im only 18 so dont have a ton of money and experience so all the help is very much appreciated. Also with the hutch mod where is best place to get a out of the tank fuel filter or is best to just let fuel bowl filter get anything that needs filtered. Plan on keeping my truck for a very long time as it has been a great truck so far and a very cheap dependable good looking truck. Only thing to complain about is that I dont like the ride very stiff. Not sure if anybody has done anything to make truck ride better. If anybody has any other ideas or thoughts of what I should do while bed is off would be much appreciated. Also if there is a better way to get rust off and what is best undercoating paint to use. Live on a farm so I do know how to use a wrench and have a nice assortment of tools power and air so can do alot more things with these tools once again thanks for any comments.
