d40 wood pattern for main platform to frame needed

I am looking for a pattern for the approx 2x6 wood that runs on top the frame from front to back, where the body is mounted onto. My wood is so rotted it would be all guess work.
Does anyone know where I can find a pattern?

Re: d40 wood pattern for main platform to frame needed

Unfortunately, there are no "patterns" of any kind for our cars. Your best option is to measure and plot the necessary parts from another car if you are lucky enough to locate one that is uncovered enough to do this.
The only other option is to carefully plot the remains of your lower sills and do both sides until you obtain a symmetrical set of measurements, R & L.
This is difficult but if you're careful and don't destroy any remaining clues, it can be done.

Good Luck and keep us informed of your progress.
