Cab floor panels??
« on: July 12, 2018, 11:14:35 PM »
Hey guys!
Is anyone fabricating cab floor panels? 
The ones I pulled off my project are swiss cheese...
Thanks,

I had the same issues after I had mine dipped. It’s interesting that modern aluminum step plate is closer in style to the 40’s steel step plate. But what I did was use my old plates as patterns. I used a saber saw and a metal cutting blade. Use lots of cutting oil. It wasn’t that hard to do!
