advice on pioneer rack and reflectors

Post by Galen »

Hello All,

Been a while since I have posted. As some of you may know I am working on a WC12 and I have a couple of questions. First, I mounted a pioneer tool rack and tools I purchased from John over at Midwest Military. I am mounting it vertically on the running board on the left side behind the cab. I am unsure of the proper way to secure the tools with the 3 straps provided. A picture is appreciated to guide me.

Also I am looking for 2 King Bee foto ray red marble reflectors for the tail gate. Thanks very much for your help

I don't know if this is right, but it's the way I've done them! I've got four straps.

Sounds good.

One thing to consider is that if it is a WC 12 it would have left the line without a rack, which would be a field fit, BUT any field fit would almost certainly have been an early rack, with the centre bar straight across, so if you can find one of those it would look better that one with an angled centre bar.

King Bee Foto-Ray No 295 is the correct designation I think.
