    happy turkey day to all, and i am having busy day with salvaging parts,

    cab rain gutters screws on 73-up around tops of doors attached to cab itself./, how in the heck do you get them removed?
    the first problem is that they are some oddball wierdo size that i ddont have a wrench for and second problem is that the heads of said screws are retardedly tucked undert he lip of the gutters, i need to hurry and get them off the truck before it goes to shredder tommorrow, i need them for the 83 so bad cuz some doofus removed them from it for apparently no reason and i dont know how they managed to do that,

    thanks for anything

    gutters are two piece, to remove them rou have to pull the outer staniless part off then you can remove the bolts holding them to the truck, take your time or you will ruin them. another way is to use a open end 5.5 mm wrench and remove all of them at one time working each bolt a little at a time. Good luck
