Hi, guys i just became the new owner of a a 1957 f100 shortbox. front end is decent cab floor and step area is junk, good glass and doors, box is in real good shape. being the cab floors and step area are bad, i know i can buy cab floor pans, but what about step area? any help would be appreciated thank you!
Congrats on the new truck! You will want to check the cab supports under the front of the floor as well. Mine were only partially bad and I was able to cut them off and repair and reinstall. This will be a lot easier with the floor out. How are the cab corners? There are parts around for these trucks but sometimes you have to look. I would strongly recommend a shop manual before you go much farther. It will give you much needed info unique to you truck!
thanks guys, i will look into shop manual and floor brace check too! of these suppliers which do you think is best, or is donor metal better? i will try and get some pics posted soon cab corners are iffy. Thanks i'm excited and p.s. why do they call them fridge?
