ok the bed side is off!! finally ha ha. still some parts of it that i need to drill the spot welds out of to get off. we cut around the wheel lip so we could get to the wheel lip clips easier so we didnt have to pry them off. also my brand new take off tailgate came today too. all we have to do is bolt it on! anyways, a few pics

ok a little bit of work done in the last couple weeks. this week we got the hood straightened. being aluminum it was no small feat either because its 3 layers thick but we got it. that will save about $700 for a new hood. we also started to push more of the dents out so we are getting very close to prime and paint time. i dont have many new pics but heres what i took this week.

before shot of the hood...
