Well thank you all for the kind words and encouragement! Some more photos of the progress- Here is the replacement bed I bought out of Texas. It's not perfect, but a lot better than the one I had. I seam sealed inside the cab and underneath and painted over with SEM Rust Trap. I also painted the frame with Rust Trap. The Rust Trap is a new product from SEM, its comparable to POR15. I was kinda sloppy underneath with the prep and seam sealing, but working upside down is hard and messy and I'm trying not to be a perfectionist on this truck. I'll probably topcoat the underside with U-Pol Gravitex or something similar to hide some of the ugly stuff.
