1934 Ford Pickup Patch Panel Gauge?

Hi,

I am a new member, so please forgive me if this subject is discussed in another thread. Just point me in the right direction.

I have a 1934 Ford pickup that is in need of some patch work.

I would like to know the original sheet metal gauge thickness, so I can match it with new steel of the same gauge.

I have measured various areas on the cab with a micrometer, but this has resulted in thicknesses ranging from 18 to 20 gauge.

Any and all advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim

I know it's a lot thicker than the crap that they use now. I was thinking 16 gauge, but if it's 18, that should be fine.

Jim,

In most cases, you will find vehicles of this vintage using 19ga. material.
