Well the upside is we dont get salted roads here (EVER). The only time I know of there was ever salt on the roads in my county was the year we were making homemade ice cream and accidentally tipped over the Morton's rock salt on the way home from town. . . . . Seriously though when it gets to that point I plan to do it right, I plan to cut out whatever is damaged, weld in new metal, and I have even thought about getting one of the local paint shops to use spray in bed liner in the cab floorboard (after the bed, and at least a year down the road) my only concern of course being the humidity and how it would react. After all the bed doesn't have cold air blowing on it in August with 122F in the shade and 40000% humidity like the cab does. main thing right now though is to get the wiring fixed, I am a little nervous as I haven't tried to repair wiring on a truck before, at least not to this extent.

So late yesterday at work I am perusing the local sale ads and find that Oreilly auto parts has autolite copper core heavy duty sparkplugs on for $1.49 a piece with a .50 mail in rebate, but the sale ends yesterday (I still had a chance). Since I dont get home in time to get by before they close I got the part number info from autolite and had my brother pickup the plugs for me. They had 9. I needed 8. So I had him pick up all 9. (Not like a plug can go bad while in the box) so Now I get to change the plugs out! WHOOOO

I had 1977 chevy full time 4 wheel drive it needed lots of work my brother gave it to me.
I rebuilt the trans and put a new torq converter in it and painted it i drove it a couple times and it sucked gas.
My brother come over one day and i gave it back sayed he could have it becouse i didnt have the money to buy lock out hub or drive it he took it home and had it parked in fronet of his house when some one stoped and wanted it he called and sayed how much do i want i told him 1700 and the guy could have it.
He bought it when my brother come over with the money i gave him half ecouse he had gave me the truck.
The last time i seen it it had a snow plow and a tow boom on it this was about 15 years ago.
