A friend of mine in Chicago went to an old book store and found a set of blueprints for a patrol truck. Although it was for a 53, it still had the same bins. He paid $5 for it. Amazing that something like that was still laying around. The company that made it went out of business in the early sixties. Here it is:

3rd door temporally hung. It took hours of grinding and adjusting to get it to fit right. Still not perfect but we are dealing with a 60 year old wood door and frame. The truck originally came with metal hinges. I priced out stainless one's and they were expensive.

Still waiting on the compartment doors so we decided to re-prime the roof and bed areas. Going to do the front sheet metal this week too.

Happy Father's Day!!!!
