    alright, I already posted this message before and everyone ignored me. but here it goes again. I need to replace my whole entire bed, not just the rear, but the whole thing. i need information if anyone has any on prices of parts, like the bed, or extra sheet metal or anything like that. And also, I have an 88 so where my bed meets the cab there is that little step down thing, and that i all rotted out, what should I do about that. any help would be greatly apreciated. thanks.

    I dont think you where ignored earlyer. But all that brown cancer probably scared everybody away. How bad is it? My grandfather was a retired body-worker. I spent my summers there as a kid, watching him fix rustet cars on the side. Some of those where in pretty bad shape but he new his trade. Sounds like you will have to clean everything out of the cab, and go to work with a power-cutter. Then when you get rid of all the rust, weld in new sheetmetal. Bending it and hammering it to make the angles needed. If you decide to buy a welder you should get pretty good at it after this project.Doing it a at a $hop sounds to expensive the way you describe the situation. You can buy replacement bed's and floors and just paste those to the good metal left to. Where to get it, others can help you with. Maybe getting a rust free donor from a wreckingyard.
    I realy cant offer you anything else but to encourage you to go for it. Good luck.

    Go back a couple of pages in the parts forum (i think 3 pages) 78blazer had a late 70's tub for sale. Dont know how it will apply, but some or most may help you out.

    Remove all body mounts, disconnect all electrical to the tub, remove doors, top seats and anything else you like and get another body, less work just make sure the new one is treated before you put it on...White Knight

    I agree with the White Knight.....there are too many good tubs for cheap to bother with replacing the whole enchilada! Ya might have to get one from a littler farther south, but it would still be worth it.
