    Bought a '33 bed, needs me to shorten it 5 1/8" front and 6" rear …
    found 1 repop rear stake pocket, need another and 1 front, plus 2 floor patches...
    . . . where do you guys get them ?
    glanced at Howell, didn't even try to call... didn't see any in mac's ?

    Would it work for you to section it & reuse the originals?

    I would, but the pockets are twisted, dented and rotted through...
    bought 1 rear repop... then a crude $12.00 one that may patch the bottom 4" or so...
    still need a front pocket, a head board, floor pan and a tail gate...
    local tin around here is pretty rusty if I even find any...

    Did you pick that bed up in my neck of the woods?

  10. Hey Sloppy...

    No I did get front pockets but again wrong year, Didn't want to send back so I made them fit.

    Well shit, The links don't work correctly. But macs does have the correct stake pockets and panels that you need.

    Just don't be a bone head like I was and get wrong year LOL

    Check fitment pockets are 32-4 front panel 33-4 and floor 33-4

    Bummer...
    my home made cab is only 48" wide [stock 51ish"] the '33 bed sides are 46" wide …
    top flanges are 52.5' at the widest...
    .
    the stake pockets show from head on... don't like it...
    ton of work to narrow and shorten it twice...
    .
    my '32 frame is 42.125" wide at the cab back...
    model a bed skins are 40 .6" apart...
    the lower outer mounting flange is 43.6"...
    an A bed might just work as the mounting flange should hide the frame...
    more tape measure and phone time ahead...
