Looks to me the bar should be in the horizontal recessed area.
Any thoughts?

What year door is it? '47 and '48 had the bar in the groove. Later models were like your picture. The design of that part changed as well.

The truck is a 48. Who knows what the doors are on it. They didn't fit well at all.

This is a picture from the repair manual. Looks right to me.

The only problem I see is the huge access hole cut in the inner panel---not necessary for either power windows or wind up ones. The Lizard Skin coating sound deadener/heat shield is a winner.

The access holes will give me plenty of room to work in and were perfect for spraying the lizard skin. I'll be able to clamp the mounting brackets where I think they should be and test the assembly before final mounting. I'll fab cover panels that will screw on to the inner door for maintenance access. I'm not doing a restoration and the door will be covered with an ultra leather panel so, the holes are a benefit.

I have over 600 Jam Handy films from the years 1932 thru 1969 covering a wide variety of mechanical, sales, cars, trucks, etc. I have posted the ones I have formatted to jpeg format at the link below. I still have 100 or so that I deem worthy of posting when I get the time. In the course of reviewing most of the 600 I have not located or have I seen anything for the later 51 to 55 1st Series cabs. In fact truck strips or information for 52-55 are quite rare, if someone does locate them I would be happy to copy and return them.
