I got a "new" MD Juan trailer body from a dealer in AZ. came in red primer. had minor rusting in locations, but overall really nice. its still sitting in the garage awaiting build, but I'm happy with it. well built and heavy.

Just finished installing the rear panels.



Couldn't be happier, I have installed many panels, (jeeps, Model A's and 64 Chev Pickup), and these fit better than 90% of all I have installed. All panels require some work.

The top had to be cut out.



to fit the top "pipe", but mine were in pretty good shape.



Better to have more material than not enough.

Pretty easy to install.

Note, the top holes for the tailgate chains were not cut out as pictured in the flyer, but that is a good thing.

Jon.

I'm glad to here a report on these as I'm the one who supplied the original pieces of which to use as patterns and they were good solid examples.

Since the chain hole was not there, were the reflector holes predrilled?  The light mounting strip is on the back?  I've heard the extra piece of square metal below the chain hole is also missing.  Can you post pic of it when attached?

Reflector holes predrilled.

Light mounting strip attached and holes pre-drilled. The mounting holes were spaced at 2" center to center, as my originals, however had to modify as I used Ford Model A lights, modified as described here:

You are correct on the piece of metal on the back, it is not on the panel. Easy to add however.
