We followed an aging and very rusted out van down the freeway one time from the central States where I assume they use a lot of salt on the highways in the winter. Painted across the back doors was

"Rust Never Sleeps"

Thought it was funny at the time and still get a chuckle whenever I see something with rust all over it heading down the road.

old thread, continuing problem

just two more cents worth-my recently aquired 95 excella had the stainless steel covers over the arms of the a-arm area of the tongue; they had been bolted through when sway control "ball ends" were attached. I removed them, and as you are aware, there was much corruption under these sleeves. If you have them, remove them and fix the rust, it will only get worse.

Thanks for breathing new life into an old thread. Good pics and good advice.

Rickdesign,

I realize three years have past since you asked your question, but since I just saw it a minute ago.....

The stops for the drawer is a pair of very long bolts on either side. Slide your arm along the edge of the drawer and you will feel them. I think they are 9/16". Using a small socket wrench, they can be backed out, then the drawer just pulls out.

I also had rusting under the bumper drawer floor mat. I, likewise, used (rustoleum) truck bed liner "paint" and left out the mat. Works well.
