I'm gonna hit it with some of that POR 15 rust proof stuff. I've used it before and it works great,,,just wire brush the heavy rust off and slap that stuff on,,,case closed.

One cross beam on what is going to be the bed should be replaced however and a few patches here and there,,not bad for a twenty year old vehicle.
Can't wait to see how well it works

There's an RV A/C unit in there and an A/C of that size is huge overkill.
Using the roof mounted unit will reguire a generator or shore power but that's ok.
I think the compressor is seized on the original unit .
The big one was charged when I took it off and I'd trade the whole unit for a fuel tank I can use.

I'm saying shore power that shit right into your barn and keep working!

Seriously, I talk in the fucking enigma code sometimes, but I just got to thinking maybe you can use the big AC unit powered off your barn to cool the place down a little. Its just sitting there, turn it on!!

Thinking outside the box, as it were.

That might work but air conditioners produce as much hot air as they do cold and all of it would be in my barn,,,,probably and even wash.

I'm gonna hit it hard over the weekend and should have some good progress to show by Sunday evening.

Has it rained yet in your neck? The breeze here is pretty cool and the clouds are looking good!

Are you going to arc weld the cross member or MIG it all back together?

Mig..... or possibly Tig. My buddy down the road is gonna help with that end of things.

He's got a sweet set up in his garage,,,I'll be sure to take lots of pics when we get to that point. Which could be as early as next weekend.

It hasn't rained here yet,,tomorrow they're calling for thunder storms.
