Tonight's objective: remove broken shit. Bed, spring hangers, etc. Inventory exhaust. Fix brakes. Maybe get to installing things?

take your biggest breaker bar and just snap all the bolts from the top side, lift bed off.

they go into clip nuts that just snap into holes.  actually nice way to do it.  i assume a bed mount kit you just use new hardware and clip nuts

ya big torx i think

T55. HF "pro" torx set is the shit. Impacted all 6 out. No twist no issue.

Rotten frame behind gas tank needs patching. Scale was completely hiding that until we were pounding rivets out. One crossmember is Swiss cheese. All hangers are off. Leaves look good.

Need two spring bolts, intermediate pipe between cat and muffler.

Fuel tank straps are gone. probably ignore that. Wish I could ignore exhaust as easily!

Bad brake line is up front somewhere. Everything under the bed is new.
