Cargo bed, composite, late war. Needs a good cleaning, new wood and some minor stake pocket work.. also replace all fasteners.

Heres where I started. There is also a bolt up under the channel. Don't forget it. I used my MAPP torch to loosen the rusted bolts. A 9/16ths deep socket and wrench were used.
