Cargo Tie Down Rail #1317162 Wed Jul 10 2019 01:48 AM

Hi Folks,

Could someone tell me the typical size of the tie down rail in the cargo area ? I'm referring to the 39-46 models but I think the later model size would be fine. I'm in the process of refinishing my interior and I would like to add the rail. The end connections and the the threaded segments in the ribs are there but my rig as originally equipped had eliminated the rail. I'm thinking it's approx 2 1/2 - 3 inches wide and approx 5/8 inch thick. Thanks.

Tony

Tony, I have my original in the shop from my 1952 panel......they may be the same but not sure. I"ll check them this afternoon and post the measurements afterwards.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Tony, I got to the shop today and measured the original piece I have. It is 2 3/4" wide and 3/8" thick. It is not square cut but doesn't appear like it was router'd on the edges just the sharp edges knocked off with maybe a sander.

Hope this helps. This is on the 52 panel........and the wood is Oak. I think originally it was painted a gray color but no documentation for that.

Nice, Alvin. I appreciate you checking that out. I purchased some nice tight grained red oak 1 x 4, which I ripped it to 3 inches wide and then planed it to 5/8 inch. Seemed too thick, so I then planed it down to just a smidge less than 1/2 inch. Then put the 1/8 inch radius roundover bit in the router to ease the edge. Think I'll leave it at 3 inches at this point. Will try to get one or both of the pieces fitted tomorrow (or soon thereafter).
