Just thought Id post how I did the running board brackets on my 35 Ford Pickup. On mine, the stock brackets were made of a pretty thin material and they had torn away over the year and were causing the Board to move a lot and sag really badly. The pictures follow the sequence I built the brackets in. On the 35 Ford Pickup brackets from the factory, the bracket mount point is actually below the Board, instead of like a Model A with the mount point above the board. Hopefully some of you can use the ideas I used to make my brackets, to make your own. I used 1/8 plate and had the local Steel shop bend them to a U Shape. They also cut the curve in it, but you could easily do that yourself also if your metal shop doesnt have that ability. Once I got them in the shape I needed I bolted the Running Board up to the truck and made sure measure its height front and back up from the ground. I actually also put blocks of wood up to the bottom of the board also so after I removed the bracket, I could ensure I got it back in the right position (so it wouldnt be tweeked or sag). I then pulled it back off and ground the old bracket off from the inside. My Boards are pretty pitted, so I couldnt tell where to drill out the spot welds on the top, or I would have done that as it wouldve been much easier. While the running board is off, youll want to drill out the old spot welds once the bracket is off, as youll be rosette welding the board back to the new bracket. Once I got the old bracket off, I bolted the running board back up and drilled the back plate of the bracket and bolted it to the frame (which is also through the running board). Make sure to hold the bracket up in place, and then make the back piece before drilling the holes. I had to grind the brackets so all of the legs of the bracket would rest against the frame. I then pulled the bracket off, welded it up. Next, I put it back under the running board, bolted it to the frame of the truck, then rosette welded it through the top of the running board. Youll have to pull the running board back off to weld all of the holes to the bracket where the cab overlaps. Then clean the welds smooth with the flapper wheel and bolt the running board back to the truck. Now they are way stronger than the factory brackets, the running boards no longer sag, and look good too. Let me know what you think, and I hope it helps some of you.
