Victor I have mentioned this to you before about how my car has this heavy Steel Kick-Up over the Oak sills in my car . It mentions it on page 44 top of columns 1 and 2 . Now I know it came from the factory .Thanks
In the picture below you can see the angle where the front floor boards sit . There is a notch in the angle for the Brake Master Cylinder . There is bolts that go through this steel to the frame to hold it in place . Then there is many screws that go through the steel plate into the 1 1/2 inch wood sill . So the wood sill is basically in a steel sandwich . This is then covered by the finished floor covering in the car .
There is also a channel welded to the steel plate on each side to take a piece of wood that goes from side to side in the car . This supports the front of legs of the front seats .

davidsnow: Just saying hello as a new member. Thank you to John Phillips for reaching out and letting me know about the forum. I live in Wisconsin and have been in the REO club for several years. My wife and I currently are serving as custodians of REO merchandise.

harley: My attempt at creating a thread with an attachment of the Royale stationary does not seem to allow the attachment to open for view. What did I not do correctly? This is my first time on a forum so it is all new to me. (Harley)
