I'm almost there! Last Sunday I pressed on and got a lot done. I got the interior all stripped down so I can give it a thorough cleaning and give the body shop plenty of space to work in.
I then removed the battery and windshield washer fluid reservoir along with the airbox and coolant tank. I was then able to strip off all the wiring and brackets off the apron tubes, it's that much less for the body shop to do. From there I removed the hood insulator along with the wipers and cowl assembly.
I also removed the running boards to get them out of the way of the body shop. I'm not sure if I'm going to put them back on or go another way though. I finished off the day by starting to cleaning the under body of all the gravel that's accumulated in all the nooks and crannies. I want to get it fairly clean so that when the rust proofing is applied it's got a good surface to stick too.
Last night I finished removing all the two way tape from the door B pillars and the new fender. I used a decal removal wheel and it made the job a lot easier. I followed that up with some Goo-Gone. The truck is nearly ready to ship out. All that's left to do before it goes to the body shop is finish washing the under-body and to sort all the hardware.
One thing I thing I missed a few weeks back. I finished stripping the new apron tubes/ radiator cross member assembly so that they are ready to be blasted and painted.
I also scored a sweet deal on a set of Ford rear wheel well liners. They're brand new, never installed and include all the hardware. I got them for $100 cash, they list for $155 at my local dealer.
Last but not least, today I ordered up a set of fender flares that will be painted to match the truck.
