Taking apart the Truck

Removed the rear fender and the mounting bolts for the Utility Body. Only 2 bolts in back & 2 brackets toward front holding it on. I can remove it now whenever I want.

It’s mainly because of these Nasty Welds holding on the rear bumper that I’m sure that the Utility Body isn’t original. The bolt at the top is one of 2 that held the Body in place.

As I take everything apart, I’m able to see the real extent of all the rust damage. Sadly I’m afraid a large part of this is from the past 2 years that the truck was sitting idle in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
