Spent 12 hours this weekend removing the spray-on bed liner. The only thing we found that really worked was Dad's Easy Spray stripper from Wally-World. It was still a PIA, and my hands are so sore, I still can't form a fist from all the scraping.

After work last night, we worked on the chips, dents and stripping off the door panels, lights, etc. Tonight, we'll work on the rusted areas and treat them.

Painted yellow like the body with the seats and carpet, like it was back in the day.

I'm still looking for new carpet hold-down bars, mine are raunchy, but with a some work, I can salvage them.

We have a bead-blast cabinet if you need them done over (they're the metal screw-on strips, right?)
