    Anyone know where to get a patch panel for the floor pan in the back of a k5 near the tail gate?? This would be different then just a flat piece of metal to weld into place. As the floor pan back there is not a flat contour.

    thanks

    You need the section of rear floor where the ribs taper down and then go into a flat panel which is then attached to the tailpan which is posted above. Correct?

    If LMC doesn't have it JC whitney may.

    the only bad part is I only need about 6 inches for both sides.....

    thanks for the find......

    I may just cut out the bad spots and have some one with a brake bend what I need.....Probably a lot cheaper.....


    thanks

    I've used peices of a pickup bed from a junkyard for patches before--same "ribs"in it!..beats paying good money for a tiwan panel,and throwing most of it away!. :doah: :crazy:

    I think that is what I need , but there is not pic.....have you got one of these in the past? Is there a pic? Basicly it is 16" tall by the width of the bed?? Does it have the ribs in it?? can you scan the pic?

    thanks

    never mind......I downloaded the catalog and basicly that looks like it would work great for what I want to do and the price is right.

    Ps. Awsome catalog for all the little tiny things that you dont knwo what to call them or where to get them

    Thanks
