    My nephew is working on a 29 RPU. he's replaced the 1/4's, the rear panel,all of the sub rails and cross channels with all new stuff.

    He's never done this before so here is what he thinks has happened. It seems the the rear panel has a twist in it.

    When attempting to test fit the rear panel, it seems as though the rear panel is too low, Could it be not sheared right from the mfg.the rear 1/4's seem to sag,but I just don't know these as stockers well enough.

    If someone has some cab inner pix, that could help.

    Thx,
    CK

    Wow, I have been trying to get someone to send me interior pics for my 29 RPU body which I am putting together from a pile of Henry parts and Brookville parts. People said oh it's simple, no problem! Not entirely true! I need some shots from up above taken down onto the floor areas, in particular the junction at cowl post, floor. How do the cowl posts braces fasten to sub rails? How do the sub rails terminate at the rear? How do the Brookville quarters fasten to subrail? I want to make sure this all goes together and doesn't end up looking goofy.
    Cyclone Kevin if you send me a PM with your email I do have some good pictures a guy from Fordbarn sent me, I will email them to you.
    Any help out here guys??

    Thx Paul, Elmo,Mark and Sumfuncomet.
    I have been working on this for Cyclone Ian=(nephew), Looked at whatever pix I could find online. I enlarged them to 400% to see just where exactly the rear panel lives. It was so freakin humid/hot today, I watched my sweat drip onto that clean new metal=eek!

    I rechecked all of the measurements and would not drill untill I was absolutely sure that was where all of the mounting points were. Now looking at the pix online, I had noticed that these cabs have wood in the 1/4's as well.

    Wayne, I'll try to get over to Carl's tomorrow some time, Have fun @ Bonneville!
    Mark, Thx for your input.
    Paul, If I get a chance, I'll take some pix.
    SFC, PM sent.

    Thx again guys.
