Dear Welder Series… 1950 Chev Pickup Mustang II?

Dear Welder Series…
Hi! I have a 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup. I decided that I want to run with the mustang II ifs. I won’t be able to buy everything all at once, so I want to start with the crossmember. I want to run bags, so it will sit on the ground. Can you tell me what crossmember is best? Thank you.

Dear Juan…
If you are planning to use conventional bags, use this version: 


The airbag people have mounting brackets to fit in the upper towers.

If you plan to use ShockWaves, use this version:


If you click on the product you can view some pictures of airbags being used with this crossmember.

Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts for your pickup, Juan.

Brake pedal/ remote booster bracket – ’50 Chevy p/u

Salty (on the H.A.M.B.) is doing some major updates to his 1950 Chevy pickup truck, and documenting it all in this thread.  He called a little while ago and asked if we could come up with a solution to mount his booster under the floor, but his frame was very narrow.  Here’s a photo of what we came up with:

You can see how he brought the booster bracket up over the top of the frame rail until the booster was very close the the inside of the rail.  He did the same thing to the pedal bracket – the bent plate actually sandwiches the pedal against the inside of the frame rail… you can’t get much tighter than that!
