oh no worries, pics will be posted, and its going from ugly ass baby blue to pearl white.. But i am having one hell of a time getting my bolts to take the bed off, anyone have any other tips besides soaking the bolts in liquid wrench and heat, that liquid wrench is flamable, all i have access to is a socket set

I just took the bed off my '92. It was 8 bolts and then the screws around the neck of the fuel tank. If i ever take another one off I am going to "C" clamp the flanges on top of the bolts that keep them from spinning. I used a socket and breaker bar and the torque ended up bending the flanges. I had to cut one off and drill another out.
