splash guard under radiator - Wed Jul 21 2021 10:18 PM
Today I noticed that the Classic Industries catalog shows a large sheet metal panel that they show installed directly beneath the radiator support frame, for 47 thru 54 pickup trucks. I know that my 53 half ton did not have one in it when I bought it. I looked in the FAM manual and I could not find any reference to it. I looked in the Jim Carter's catalog, and found NO reference to it there either. Classic Industries calls it a "radiator support". I would call it a splash guard. I guess my question is: did this part actually exist in the original 3100 AD trucks? Their picture makes it look like it sandwiched between the crossmember and the radiator support. It appears to span from one frame rail to the other, and extends in front of and behind the radiator. Please advise.
