You know what, I am so interested I am going to do the basketball thing now.
I have popped dents out of doors.. when doing this. Just go slow its just like a air bag the firer deptment uses on crashesYou know what, I am so interested I am going to do the basketball thing now.
Anyone know where i can get replacement panels or at least the half i need? I could not find a bed in the junk yards i have gone to that would fit or has usable panels.Im not an expert ,but it looks like there was some damage that has already been fixed. Looks like a lot of bondo in there now. I would order new bed skin and fix it my self, then take to body shop get them to respray that fender for like 1/3 of the money...
If that tailgate has the foldup handle, then it should have the factory pullout step!Update: Bought the bed for $300. also came with tail lights and the tail gate with the "SUPERDUTY" embossed in it and also has a handle that folds up to help you get in. Spent some time pressure washing I'll get pictures. Threads are no fun without pictures.
I'm sorry, but I love how the fourth step is doing what you told us what not to do in the previous step :hehe:I'm going to go ahead and just keep posting as this will be write up to remove the bedside body panel. I just started but thought i would post up some pics. Pictures will be in order as i explain.
For reference we are looking at the underside wheel well.
-First thing is to locate the spot welds. Center of the picture you can see the faint circle outline of the spot weld.
-Second, I bought a spot weld cutter that looks like a mini hole saw with a needle in the middle as a guide
-Third, I drilled a hole for the needle to be used as a guide and took the spot weld cutter and very so carefully cut through the first sheet of metal. DO NOT CUT THROUGH THE SECOND SHEET OF METAL!!
-Forth, I CUT THROUGH THE SECOND SHEET OF METAL. :doh:
-Fifth, I used a dull wood chisel to tap between the two sheets of metal to separate them.
I am in the process to continue and i will do a more detailed write up. But that is the basic removal at this point.
