cut it all out replace it with new metal and fiberglass. then sand and paint. i will be painting it in the spring next year probably metalic blue or black to fit in with the other 2. and i started undercoating the whole frame but i need 2 new gas tanks. i tried to put one in the guy gave me it wouldnt fit. i had the feeling since it came off of a 97 ford f-250 so im gonna have to replace the rear tank. after im done with the body work ill post more pics.

Hey, How are you powering your four lights on the z? Are you using an additional battery or running them off the alternator? I really like that light set up and boy do I need it for my machines! Thanks! Nice truck too by the way.

Do you not have a deck assist lift on the mower? I tried lifting my deck without using the foot pedal and wow, almost got a hernia!
