I just picked up a 66 fleetside, 350 sbc, 4sp manual. I love this truck!

I have a favor to ask the community. PO put Bondo over the hole for the pivot bolt that holds the latch- see pic of mine vs stock.

Would someone be willing to measure the location of the hole relative to the inside of the panel, where it's indented, and the top of the panel? The threaded bracket is still there, behind where the hole should be, but it's spot welded so I can't see how far the threaded hole extends in. I just need a little guidance to start drilling Bondo. Thank you!

Are you talking about the hole in the upper, that holds the chain? Are you planning on putting chains back on?

Yes, exactly. I'm putting chains back on but I don't have a hole for the "pivot bolt". There should be a hole where the red circle is.

On my 64 C-10 longbed..I have an Allen bolt in the hole. Idea was to fill the hole, I was gonna weld it up.

You can see those chains can beat stuff up after years..

I like yours..everything is painted and filled, I wish mine was there. This is what I did after removing the chains..stainless steel yacht cabinet hardware on the inside...one on each side, and you can padlock it.
