Unbolted the bed and slid it back from the cab.

Can't see it in the pictures but there are dents on each side where the top of the bed had somehow been slammed into the cab.

What are your plans for inside the bed.
A tintable bed liner might be the trick to save some prep and have a usable piece once it’s done.

He plans to do the inside of the bed with a spray in liner later on.
I'll simply straighten the worst of it if I can and then leave it in epoxy primer.

Most of the seam sealer has been removed:

Started cleaning up the tight areas on the cab. Door jambs, window channels and seams as media blasting would only make a huge mess inside the cab since the under dash components are still installed.

I had mixed some white and black epoxy primer to produce a gray for the Freightliner I painted. Decided to use it up on this project.

Waiting for some seam sealer to arrive before I get serious with the outside.

Decided to take apart the gauge cluster since it needs work.
