Re: Truck Doors

The 38 and 39 have 3 body mold lines and the 47 has only two. I do not know about the other details in terms of being able to interchange them.

Re: 1939 Pickup Front Fender Welting Question

Do any of you have a source for the bumpers that go in the holes on the cab that the hood sides go up against? They are pictured in 39 Portlander's first post in the last picture.
