I am planning on refinishing the present white oak boards in my '51 B3B. I thought if I was taking it apart, that I would probably change the bed strips and bed angle strips to stainless steel. Companies that list the strips for my vehicle state," the mounting holes are drilled per original specs". I have learned through experience that a lot of original specs have been changes on my truck by previous owners. So I want to check that holes in my present strips are stock. Two companies who sell this product are so busy that they have not responded to email inquiries for the mount locations. These are front to back measurements for the mount locations(approximate), on my 78" strips. The bed and side angle strips seem to match pretty good except for the second bolt location on the bed stips; Bed Side angle 4" 4" 14" 16" 24" 24" 40" 40" 53.5" 53.5" 65.5" 65.5" 77.3" 77.3" Also does anyone have opinions on the stainless side angle strips that cover the original steel side strips, that are welded to the bed sides? The paint on my truck is decent and I don't want to remove the originals and damage the paint. Thank you for your assistance.
What would have/should have gone on my firewall to cover the starter button hole? Car came with a poorly made piece of plastic crap. I hate to put it back because it’s.... gross. Wondering if I can adapt a leather shift boot... 🤔
