    Toe boards

    Just wanted to share some interesting pics / info. As you all know the toe kick boards are not re-poped for our cars, but check this out and it fits perfect!!! The gas tank is from a 1965 mustang (sorry). Just thought I'd share this.

    It's a 65, but i believe they're all similar thru the early 70s

    I wonder if the middle of the gas tank can be the front rear passenger side floor board?

    Dang it. I didnt know the toe boards weren't available - no wonder I can't find anyone selling them. I think I need to replace mine on the RH side.

    Here is what I am left with, after the media blast. How high up does the floor pan replacement go?

    The front floor pan should go all the way to the seam. BTW, I just checked NPD and a mustang fuel tank is $81.95. Don't get me wrong, nobody likes cutting up new parts but, it seems to me the cost is comparable to buying a new piece of stamped steel. Not to mention parts cars are all over CL, so one might be had for a whole lot less.

    Thanks David. Im going to call my body shop and let them know about this.

    I was just meeting with him yesterday and he told me he was having trouble finding the toe board. I searched for two hours this morning and found nothing, then stumbled into your post, which explained why I was finding nothing. Strange that no one is making this - the toeboard is a recurring problem area for these cars.

    I'll let you guys know if they have anything to add.

    Ok, the guys at my resto shop like this idea. +10 Internets for you sir!

    Psychologically, I must now begin addressing the shame caused by knowing it took a Mustang to get my Camaro on the road again. LOL
