The outside of the truck has stuff growing on it all over. When we looked inside, it looked like more plant life. Turns out it is astro-turf. The old traces are where the glue was.

One way or another, it will probably need to be cut on. Even if I get the firewall width sorted with little drama, I will probably have to section the cab a couple of inches when I do the rust...
