Pickel, You need to read the directions for linking images to your post.


Here's how. Although your image is very blurred.



The process is described here: http://www.willysmjeeps.com/v2/modules.php?set_albumName=album53&op=modload&name=gallery&file=index&include=view_album.php

With a little investigation in my photo albums I found your referenced bracket.

With accurate measurements they should be easy to fabricate yourself. I'll see what I can find.

HI Wes.

I would greatly appreciate any measurements if you can provide....and if you can tell me the thickness of the material that would be great too. tThank you.


if anyone has plans of it, that would be awesome!

I have fabricated a few of the parts already. latches, heat shield, rear cross, rear corner and internal curved hat channel just to name a few. it is enjoyable when you can say you can do it yourself!

edit: the angle of the piece would also be appreciated as well. and if anyone has the ability to get me the measurement of the front right driver's side seat frame leg (from top of curve to floor). this is the short leg that would be on the transmission hump.

love the challenge of trying to figure out the jeep parts!

M38 Drivers Seat Frame, right front leg is 8.25" from floor (trans hump) to the top of the horizontal pipe. It attaches to the horizontal pipe on a downward angle and has a dog leg bend to go around the fuel tank...hope this helps.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the measurement as I know at least where mine needs to be.

Wes, thank you. Hi was actually looking in your album and saw those pics and realized I am missing mine. An oh shoot moment

MIke/Wes

thank you for that info and pic.

one last question if you don't mind....what would be the distance from the floor to the center of bend (before it goes to seat frame? Ball park. this should give the angle....it looks like the angle is about 30 degree bend but understand it also has to be to clear the gas tank.

thanks in advance.

Looks like a 45* bend to me. It's 5.25" from the floor to the center of the bend and 3.25" from the center of the bend to the seat horizontal pipe. It's a pretty tight radius...maybe 1"???

Hope this helps!

update:

Mike/Wes

took me longer to post this than the actual fabrication, but got it done. i wanted to say thanks for measurements and pics. I actually had to fabricate from scratch the front right one, and I had to replace the left frame portion as well.



Still have some tweaking around the foot part, but I think seems to be right. Also, if you notice the rear floor riser, that was also fabricated...dolly by hand.
