    So to get the mill scale off I sprayed the panel with white vinegar, laid some paper towels on it and sprayed again then covered with plastic and let it sit for 24 hrs re wetting 2 times. Then I hit it with scotchbrite and rinsed with soapy water. Pleased with the results, the other sides are soaking

    So I'm pretty pleased on how the bed came out, I have to cut the pocket holes in the top rails then it's off to the body shop.........which is pretty much where it sits
