    This thread should get you all the hole dimensions for your end gate. Save the last picture, then you can blow it up enough to see.

    You'd been too quiet, too long. It's like the kids - if we don't hear from you we get worried.

    Yeah, go slow and do it once.

    When it first came in a friend looked at it and said, hell one afternoon tops.......................
    yeah right, but it is going in, when trying to line up everything you get one corner or side right and then the other corner is out, and vice versa, so decided to start in the middle of the deck where it joins the tail section, there is a curved section that the floor sits on and that is where i started and slowly moving outboard and it seems to be working

    Looks good! It takes a bit of ironing out, but it will work out fine.

    In the picture, I see you found yourself a fuel tank? Or is that one of the originals that is too far gone?

    I'll be damned. Must have been the fuel tank fairy? I'm still looking for a box suitable for putting your shovel in.

    WHILE I HAD BODY ON ITS SIDE FOUND SEVERAL RUSTY AREAS THAT I HAD MISSED, AND THEY WERE ALL PREDOMINATELY AROUND THE BRACE AND UNDER THE SEAT BRACKET.
    Removed seat bracket and cut out the rusty bad areas and welded in a patch from inside with new steel. then from other side welded in "hole fills" had to repeat process because of "pockets or voids" but after three sessions and grinding each session to flat was able to achieve smooth unbroken section. since a patch was welded on all four sides and filled from other side, feel that water would be near impossible to get in there, and will be undercoating with same stuff used in truck beds, re attached seat bracket.
