Re: Fix and Sale 72 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 K2500

Made more progress on bedside removal this weekend. Finally got it off after a few more sessions with a cut off grinder and a small cold chisel. As you can see in the first picture the bed bolts that hold the bed to the frame were in bad shape and I decided to grind down the heads and then drill center a bit, then hit them with a punch. Took about 1/2 hour to get the bed so I cold move it to remove front panel bolts and the two screws at the top. Those came of pretty easy except top two needed a little heating with map gas from the back.

The last picture is to show how good the wheel arch area is with no rust, this will be cut out and used on the other bedside that is going back on truck. This bedside was really straight but had a little rust on the inside tub area. So a little cut and weld to get it back to a solid bedside.
