Measurements F1 Frame (Body Mounts)

Hi I'm new here, I have a 49 F1 pickup that needs a lot of work. I pulled the Cab and Bed off the frame to repair some cracks and the body mount holes, the center holes where the cab mounts to the frame are wobbled out , I've made new pieces to repair the frame but need the measurement from side to side, center of holes before I weld them in. Thanks for any help you can give me.

All you need to do is measure across the bolt holes on the cab. There is quite a bit of slop in those mounts so they can be off a little.

Honestly, unless they are WAY screwed up you will usually shift the cab around a little anyway to align it with the frame. Honestly, unless there is a BIG problem with the hole it isn't a big deal if they aren't perfect.
