Help with floor mat stud locations

Could someone please help me out with dimensions to the studs that hold the floor mat in an AD truck?
I had to replace parts of the kick panel and have one clinging to a piece of rusty metal that I need to reinstall. I think it goes on the right side near one of the inner fender bolts, but don't have those holes currently either (dimensions to those would also be awesome). Not sure if there was also a stud on the left side near the parking brake bracket (maybe that's what the hole was for ohwell), or if I need to track down another stud so I can put them on both sides.

Thanks

Do you still have your old floormat? The studs line up with the holes to keep the mat from sliding up under your feet. I would lay out the mat and trace the holes where they go.

I think those pins are for original firewall pad

Floor mat on drivers side held up by other means

Check your FAM

You sent me through old pictures of the teardown of my 54. Cab not available to look at right now but I can't find pictures showing anything above the toe-board on mine so I have to stick with floor mat pins. You said AD but did not specify year so I probably have not helped at all.

That's funny. I didn't even have a FLOOR when I got my truck. grin

No, I recall pulling the firewall pad off. It was held on by wire spring clips.
Your first pic helps a lot. It tells me that pin with a bit of floor attached goes on the driver's side. Once I drill for the parking brake bracket, I can position that pin. Thanks. The FAM shows the pins, but not the locations.
Now I just need to see if someone can get me the location of the passenger side pin (FAM shows one there) and the location of the inner fender bolt holes.

Stovebolt comes thru again. thumbs_up

Maybe originally there was an eye for the jute?

I have a couple old bad pics of passenger side. Something close to upper bead

Yep, that's the one that's shown on the FAM. If someone could measure from the kick panel to the stud, that would get me where I need to be.

Here is a shot of my truck during teardown. I don't know if it will give a point of reference or not. Cab is not readily accessible or I would get measurement for you. Hope this helps. I still stand my ground that the posts hold the upper part of the floor mat though.

Thanks Greg
I agree that they're for the floor mat. That pic helps.
