Got my dash panels back from Joe Goss. Highly recommend Joe (woodgrain@comcast.net) to anyone who is looking for woodgraining. Reasonable price and very quick turn around. You can see the original color in the before pics in the area under the plates. He got pretty close on the match. Very pleased. Will get them on after I finish up the running boards.

Those look great! Hopefully, I won’t be too far down the road getting that done I want to get all the mechanical in good order, including new springs all around. Then, I’ll be moving on to the dash.

Could someone post a picture of the trim piece of rubber that’s between the running board and the rear fender? Looking to see how it all ties together with the running board trim and fender.

Thanks!

Not sure if this will help. This is original and not in great shape.

The original was pretty molded as one piece. The replacements have the rear piece as a separate piece. I imagine it needed to glued to the board in that position. It is not attached to fender. Just pushed up against it.

Thanks. Yes. It pretty much gets wedged in. I am looking to see how to complete the bottom edge. Where it meets the running board trim. Not sure if cut straight across? Tuck it under?

I have been evaluating an anti-freeze leak. It is not a big drip, but enough for the pan to catch. I think i have narrowed it down to the Mounting Block, and thinking the rubber has come to a point wear it is brittle enough to have a slow leak. I replaced the water pump last year, and if i was wiser, would have tackle it then but we live and learn!.

Is this a common point for a leak? I have checked around the other points and have not seen anything. It is "wet" on the underside of the mount, and the inside, where the 2 bolts hold it on.

Should I replace just the rubber mounts? or the mounting plate as well? Do I add sealer as i would with a gasket?

Don gave me nice instructions on how to go about it, but tossing it out there for other thoughts and guidance.

Thanks!
Ben
