'29 roadster pickup sill plates
 

I'm installing reproduction sill plates on my '29 rpu and the bottom edge is rolled too far inboard to align with the bottom of the quarter panel. I'm not clear on how the bottom edge of the sill plate relates to the bracket on the sub rail , but I suspect I may not have it placed correctly in/on the bracket. Any suggestions?

I found them to be so far from correct, i used my rusted originals after some repair. The repos are on the shelf.

Thanks, Russ. I sort of expected to hear that. My orignals were beyond repair. Fortunately, I'm pretty handy with metal, so I think I'll just reshape as needed. I'm still uncertain as to how the lower edge sits in/on the bracket. Anyone got a photo?

I have no experience with those on Roadster Pickups, but assume that they are mounted the same as those on Roadsters and Phaetons, with the exception of around the different seat base. The ones I've used for Roadsters actually fit fairly well. Basically the lower outside bead should line up with the bead on both the cowl post and the panel behind the door and then the sill edge is wrapped under the subframe. Here's some pictures I posted several years ago of how things go on a Roadster.

Another. For some reason it wouldn't post above any way but rotated. Still won't - no idea why, but thumbnail is right side up!!

Thanks, Randy. After a bit of massaging, I got mine to fit reasonably well. The passenger side is good, the driver's side less so. However, I attribute that to the fact that I had to do extensive rust repairs on the subrails on that side including bracket replacement and my repairs could be a little off.
