    I.D.K.?

    Intro

    Hi everyone! I recently bought an orange truck bed trailer that I think came from a Plymouth arrow sport from between 1978 and 1980. Itís got a lot of rust which has made some pretty big holes in the bed so Iím mostly looking for advice on patching the bed while keeping the original appearance as intact as possible. Itís such a cool color/design and I donít want to spend a lot fixing it up, so Iím just clear coating the outside despite the rust spots, but the bed needs some repair.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    I have almost finished restoring the bed of my one. Are you able to link some photos? Typically they rust out at the seams. If its the tray itself then its actually quite easy to unpick the panel and replace (expecially if you say replace it with some flat steel or checkerplate rather than a swaged panel)

    some pics here

    mine is a NZ built tray, so is a little different to yours but is close enough

    Nice, welcome to the club. Best to do a fully body examination. Lots of rusted as well as rubber parts start to fail over time.
