No there are no holes. And if you drill and in the front the water will run into the cab and then you will have a mess. Most El Caminos sit a little lower in the front so the water wants to sit in the front of the box. My buddy drilled holes there and made a mess.

Thanks. I thought that if there were holes it would drain into cab. I have a little rust near cab and did a little brushing on it to see if it was just this spot or there would be more under the paint/coating but I was glad to see shinny metal as I worked the edges of the spot. As I was doing this there appears to be a repaired small hole on each side of the bed at the same location in the bed. I bought some brushes to go on an angle grinder yesterday, thinking about taking the time to strip the whole bed. Thanks again for your advice. Gman
