Hey, nice mismatched door, you must be from Clearlake, CA. the poorest place to live in California...we can't afford Pavement or Streetlights...is a haunted hell-box of a place to live but I'm here now...it is very easy think that there's a "paw-pad"...four of them each one has two bolts~ you probably will want to buy a 9/16? swivel ...might be 5/8...get them both...open/box ended wrenches in 1/2 and 9/16....anyways it's NO big deal, except the darned seatbelt gooser stickin' up the middle~ you will need two guys for this job...it's tough to do alone...well the wife was there to dial 911~

as far as the floor "boards" take everything that will catch fire out of the immediate vicinity, in fact get a plate that you can use as a blocker...there probably is a pre-formed floor pans just weld it in----give me a little time to come up with this...need another pot of coffee anyways~

911 ?? really?? ick Guess I will get my son to help. as for the floorboard I have a piece of diamond plate and LOTS of J&B Weld. THAT will fix anything.I figure while Horse is not going anywhere I might as well fix something on it. BTW I am in Dayton OH and I probably shouldn't have bought Horse but I wanted a truck for hauling. You know, tree limbs over grown lilac bushes etc My son's peeved now he has to come over to help... :)
