I have a question---if you look to the upper right corner about where the stick shift goes thru in the cab--the metal is wrinkled there---and the funny part to me is it looks like it is supposed to be this way---am I wrong?

Hey Lee,
Thanks for the info--I kind of figured that was the case---almost looked like "too perfect" of a dent. If that makes any sense at all? haha

Yeah, I could say that too but my wife would see this and I would be in trouble.

Not that is perfectly formed either, but doesn't seem as bad as the one you show. Maybe they were better or worse at times, depends who was working that stamping machine and what year, etc.

The brake handle slot hole seems to be different between the 2. Maybe for different transmissions, 4 vs. 5 speeds? Maybe that also explains the difference in the wrinkles.
