    So I finally pulled my plastic bedliner :eek: and there is 'some' rust at the front of the bed by one of the bolts..
    Where the wavy layer of the bed lays in the bottom, is that removable so that I can see how bad it is under it?

    I don't think you can separate any Part of the bed without drilling the rivets out :/

    Lol. I'll go take a pic but I'm at work and will have to 'mobile upload' through photobucket and that will take a couple hours..

    Wire wheel it, then use a rustoleum paint
  8. This ^ I believe they sell an actual rust preventative paint, so if you could find that you'll be good.
  9. This works too, but I don't think you wanna spend $150 for one little spot lol

    You can also use a grinder with a rust/paint stripping pad like this
  13. Oh, that works too then.

    Yeah a roided up brillo pad but they rock man! You can use the ones for the drills, just doesnt go fast enough to grind it quick so it will take a little longer but you'll be good
