    My mission is to keep for 6 more years, w/o haveing a rust bucket. . and save up money for a 2500 crewcab full bed, white 6.0 mabey diesel . And putting money into that not this. Just as much as I have to. Only 59,053 miles on my V6 4.3. Or do you think I need to put in some cash now. I think I can stop it but not for sure doing myself...??? Anyone???

    Actually [MENTION=53221]Curky[/MENTION] I was going to do the same thing to my white 96 3/4 ton. I actually bought some white bed liner stuff to do it with but the weather hasnt allowed me to get it done.. I would sand it down to bare metal so all the rust is gone.. use some spot puddy and just fill it in and sand it smooth. Then tape it off and roll it on..Im actually thinking of coming up to the body line on my truck which is almost 9+ inches.. Have to do something with my bed rails also. Hope this stuff stops the rusting for a few years... 0220141709a.jpg 0220141708.jpg 0220141709.jpg

    If you want to keep it 6 more years youll need to invest some now to make sure it lasts.
    Untended corrosion can spread suprisingly fast.
    I think you have a good low investment plan thatll achieve what you need to.
    Look into chemical conversion coatings, once rust is there even if you dont see it, theres always something left behind that increases the growth rate the second time around.
    Also think about a good primer before applying the liner.
