Verified the rear side panel for the A1 by doing a mock fit up with the rear fender top and rear panel. Looks good to me. There will be a small extension welded and blended where the panel extends under the footman loop on the rear fender top. We will also spot weld the footman loop to the side panel.



Side panel has the offset bend (like the original) so the edge of the rear fender top and surface of the side panel is flush.




Also took some time and confirmed that the A2 rear panel corner pieces are good. I have to slit the area on the side for the offset on the A2 rear side panel but that is a cake job. The cut out for around the tail light was done with our scanner so it is exact to what i copied. I'm now going to work on the drawing for the complete A2 rear panel as I think I have all the information that I need.

For those attending the Gilbert, PA show (September 16th & 17th) we will be at K1 & K2. Go through the main gate and take a left at the first cross road. All the way down on the inside corner. Hope to meet some new members from the group.

Another part off the list. Rear side panel for A1. I'm guessing this is the same as the straight 151? Part has the offset bend where it tucks behind the fender top and footman loop is included. Panels are $65 Each.

Here are some pictures of the A1 and A2 rear side panels and the A2 donor part that I copied. The A1's are in production quantites and the A2's are test pieces. I might change the way we fabricate the radius piece on the A2. The two 3/16" dia holes on both parts are for plug welding the footman loop on. This will be done with a TIG welder.

Here is the first set of 151 fender supports with the stiffener beads. Because of the flanges / bends around the beads the results were better than expected based on previous samples. We'll get into the A1 passenger side next week. I've sent out a request for quote for a progressive rib tool (C1 Laser) for the Dash Bead as the hand bead roller will not be able to duplicate to the level of quality I want.

Here is the first "finished" set of A1 rear fender supports. Top flange has been extended 1/2" over what mine measured. I think we made around 5 sets at this time and I still have to come up with a price.

This is what we came up with for the rear fender support ribs. This was a major PIA but here it is. I'll now go through and update the other versions with this change. The rib basically splits the difference between the 3 models. This took way longer than expected but I'm happy with the outcome as it's a good part for what it is. This also makes for a very stiff part for what the original design is.

The first set of full side panels are complete with the exception of the door rod bracket. Need to make some minor changes to the program but they are very close to being able to be released for production.

We are working on the A2 Rear Cross Member. I found the NOS (in primer) at the Gilbert show last year. We cut the Aluminum weld fixtures on our water jet.

This is the DS of the second set of full side panels. Have some minor changes before running a production run but this is what the finished product will look like. Price has not yet been determined. This one will be on display at York this week. Army Jeep Parts will have this and a couple of other parts. And yes, to those with a sharp 151 eye - A2 truck and the panel is A1 - no side drain. We'll offer both...
