Bed assembly

I am getting ready to assemble my bed and have some questions . Should it be painted apart ? It is going to have to be welded bed sides to floor when it goes together . Did GM use a sealer between bed sides and floor ? Thanks

Re: Bed assembly

68 short wheelbase and it needs each bed side spot welded to each side. I cant remember if it had some kind of sealer between were the sides and front panel bolt to the floor. I have it epoxy and high build primer on it now.
