52' Bed Wood Thickness?

I am working to replace the bedwood after some modificaitons to my frame and placement of a fuel cell in the rear. For the meantime, I wanted to bolt the bed back onto the frame but need to leave it open for work. What size spacers will I need to mount the bed without the wood? It appears the wood goes between the bed sides and the frame but I am not sure if original wood was 3/4" or 1" thick. Thank you -

The original planks were actially 3/4 inch thick ( "1 by...lumber) and are dadoed for the strips and end pieces.

Here is a great link to another FTE forum that should have all the info you need!
