I'm working on my truck trying to get all the body panels aligned before paint.with the bed installed what is expose to be the gap between the front bed panel and back of the cab.

Also how can you determine if the cab is installed square on the frame.right now it seems like it's sitting to far to the passenger side. While looking down the truck from the front the rear fender on the driver side is sticking out.

I measured from the cab mounts flush on the frame to the back of the rockers and is off about 3/4 to 1 inch off. Was wondering g if that was normal.

Thanks in advance. Ecklers

I have a 66 longbox stepside the gap at the top of the pass side is 1 inch. It's 1.25 at the bottom pass side and moving over to the driver's side it is 1" top and bottom.
