Thanks Jeff, that's what I figured. Patterns would be great, let me know what you need to get for them. I am buying some cloth material for the dash, visors, upper door panels and should have enough left for these. Thanks again!
On passenger side, there is a metal lid with a D ring that snaps down over the battery compartment. Just outboard of that is a piece of angle iron with three screws holding it...between it and the battery compartment you will find of piece of cloth. this was the cover on the hardboard piece by which it hinged up and down. I also cut a cover for the driver's side out of the hardboard too, and added one tab to help hold it up. This is where the brake booster went on those that had them....which is a good add given how weak the stopping power is! I can send paper patterns of each if you wish. Good Luck! Jeff
Mine are missing, but what exactly were there for access panels (on the floor) behind the seats? Were they steel, or hardboard? I see what's left of screws.......and noticed supports on the sides. These really are cool trucks!
