David,

you are really doing a great restoration job! It appears you want to come very close to the original, which I personally like.
When do you post some pictures of the whole vehicle? Maybe you can do a quick "roll-out" from the garage this weekend? :-)


Kind regards,
Constantin

I picked the side boards up from the guy that has done the pressings on the side boards today, I have taken them back to the sheet metal fabricators to finish everything off ,he has made a very good job with the pressings .He gave me the press parts as he had no further use for them. I will post a photo of the sides when I get them

Hi David,
It's very handy to have those press dies. Is there any chance of getting a CAD drawing with dimensions for the die set posted on this forum?
Cheers,
Steve

Did anyone ever get any dimensions for those dies?

If so, could you please post them up? Right now I'm welding up a tube style sideboard and tailboard set, but I still want to make some repro boards that look correct, at some time in the future.

Sorry for the delay in posting the sizes of the plates for the side boards pressings. I dont know how to do a cad drawing, so I hope the photos will be ok.

Dave can you knock up a set of long side boards and tail gate for a SWB haffy and send them down to me in Canberra - painted in gloss beige would be good ;) and before Easter would be real good ;) ;) .

Thanks

Garry
