PROJECT THREAD PICS! Fighting Ohio Rust

Alright Ohio winters have taken the toll on another 7.3. My truck is a 2000 F-350 ext. cab short bed with the ZF6 Tranny behind it, the odometer read 164,xxx. My goal of this project is too effectly slow down this rust as much as possible and make the truck looking great and as cheaply as I can by not buying cheap products but doing as much labor myself or the help of my vocational school. My motto for this project is "If you dont have the money or time to do it right the 1st time how will you have it to do it the 2nd time"

Bio: My name is Mike Verbiar. I am a junior at Ehove Career Center in the Diesel Technology Program. I am 17 and I work for Valley Harbor marinia as a mechanic, operator, yard man and anything else to keep the marinia runnig year round. I have had my truck for about 1 year now my mom help me buy my truck interest free, but I am paying it off.

List of things to be done
-Two new panels over wheel arch/new bed supports/ bed under coated
-Drivers side cab corner
-Clean then Undercoat entire underside with POR 15 then paint with tractor paint for UV protection
-Repaint rockers, bumpers, and grille with herculiner using proper preping
-Remove entire interior and paint floor using POR 15/Tractor paint
-Paint Bed Liner

Parts List
-Wheel Arch x2 $55 each
-Paint/Bondo for Bed -$100
-Cab Corner $55
-POR 15 (Gal.) -$125
-Herculiner (gal.) x2 -$160
-Tractor Paint (Gal.) -$50

**Special Thanks to Valley Harbor Marinia by employer for letting them use their heated shop to work on my truck this Winter. Let the Project Begin. Hope everyone enjoys.

Note- I've been look for a BasAss nick name for my truck so if anyone has one throw them out there, thanks

My truck when I first got it, not much rust as you can see but it just got worse.
[IMG][/IMG]

Grinding the bed bolts off, a little over kill with the grinder lol



Removing bed, Forgot one hose clamp thanks to my brother for trusting me and the tractor.


Here Comes the bed


I was pretty happy to finally have it off


She looks gutless without the bed


I had to make it legal so I could still drive it soo, here came my plywood flatbed and LED light strip zip tied to the bumper. YeeHaw


Panels came in the mail. Great buy off ebay quite thick for a replacement panel.


Sorry I didnt get any pics of my bed on the trailer to the body shop at school but hand go to them, here is day 1 of them having my bed. Yes 1 day lol. Patches are welded in.


I begin this project on Janurary 15th and this is it as of 1/18/12. Hope you like it so far I'll try and keep it updated everyday.

Looking real good man. These Ohio winters are bad on our trucks. I'm in the same boat as you. And have pretty much the same goals as you. Lol. I have just recently taken my bed off and coated my entire frame and underneath of the cab with pod-15. Looking forward to seeing more progress.

Looks like fun bro! The only places I have rust is on the frame, fortunately the bed and cab are all virtually rust free...I would like to clean up the underside of the truck and seal it up to prevent further rust damage and to make it look better!

I'll be watching your progress!!

nice! How do the rail-mounts look underneath (not sure what its called, but the spot that hits the frame) The only rust on my truck is right where the bed touches the frame. I am going to assume yours are rusting, what are your plans and repairing them?
