    folks,
    pulled up the carpet on my 84 fj60. i eventually want to truck bed liner the floor. well of course there was a ton of rust from wet carpeting. does anybody know how to remove the factory flooring material(it looks like toyota's version of a sound insulator)? im refering to the stuff that is stuck directly to the floor pan and feels like a real dense foam/ nerf/tar material. yes the rust even bubbles under this stuff. fixing the rust is the biggest battle on these trucks.

    tks

    Two words: Air chisel, pops it off in huge, galloping chunks.

    Seconded. Don't let anyone convince you need dry ice and all that crap. Just hit it with an air hammer with a wide tip blade, you'll be done in no time. In fact, it's one of those jobs where cleanup takes longer than the job.
