Some instructions say drill out all the spot welds and take everything off.
Others recommend leaving the top rail welded on for strength, and cutting the
bed right below it. Thats what I am planning on for now. Fiberwerx
basically said either was acceptable, not too much help. I started stripping down the front today. While I am up there
I am putting on a fiberglass hood, new bumper, grill and headlights. Planning on pulling the bed off this weekend and starting it.
