I just picked up an '84 W150 with 360K miles on it. She needs a
carb rebuild but other than that she is in great shape. There is
almost no rust on it. Just 3 or 4 surface spots. I do need to bang
out the bed since my buddy who owned it before me was hauling boulders
and it beat the crap out of the inside. I am going to tackle the
wheel wells with a sledge hammer but I am not sure how to get the
front of the bed bent back into the shape. It is bowed towards the
cab. The top rail is still pretty square, just bent. Any ideas on
how to pull that back in. If I can get that taken care of, I can put
on a new tail gate and spray a bed liner in and be good to go.
Another question. Since she is in such good shape, I have decided
to restore her. I figure I can do that for 1/2 the cost of a new
pickup and not be quite so worried about throwing stuff in the back.
Any suggestions on finding parts like dash trim. I have been
searching the net and have not found any of those. I can get body
parts all over, just not the little stuff. Thanks for any help you
can give me.
