Hello all
Can some one post a pic of where the rear and middle cardboard panels meet
I checked my originals and there are no holes; I think there should be 6 holes but mine only have 4
I am getting new panels made and want to get the holes right before the upholsterer applies vinylPanels

*** 4 holes in each panel is correct. Where the 2 panels meet in the middle you should see 2 screw holes one above the other. There is a metal strip attached in a vertical position that covers the ends of each panel. If you need a picture of the metal strip send me your cell number & I will text you a picture.

Besides those two holes/screws in the middle metal "divider" strip, the are two screws at the "outside" ends of each piece of cardboard panel.

There also two screws into the metal wall below each of the sliding windows dividers.

Do you want to see photos of those locations iin the interior side wall?

** Suburban Lou** If your side panels still have the orig. metal trim that goes around the panels, do what-ever it takes to make them work. I've been looking for the orig. metal trim pieces for a year with no luck. ** Finally was able to find something that worked just about as well in function & appearance. **

Lou,

If you want to try to buy those pieces, search the forum for how to contact Mothertrucker (email), and/or search the Parts For Sale forum for delux54panel (Private Message)
