Spring Cleaning

My truck was filthyy. Never washed the under carriage nor under the bed. today was nice so i got to the car wash in my wetsuit. yes a wet suit and went to town laying down under the truck blasting the mud and icky poo off. i had the bed off to. washed the under side of the bed also along with under coating the bed. I then wire brushed the frame and other things then used 8 cans of 3M rubberized under coating and did the entire truck under neath. here are pics. OH having the bed off was a blasttt. i couldn't believe how sideways it gets from a dead stop. the town was flushing the hydrants. soooo much fun

I'm hoping to find time soon to do the same thing to mine!! I need to stop the rust in its tracks before it starts to spread to the pretty side of the truck.

BTW, love the murdered look. Going the same way with mine. I'll get some pics up once I get her cleaned up nice
