We apologize for the inconvenience but instructions for the boxing plates are currently not offered. The 91054430 plates for the 48-52 Ford pickup will encompass the area for the front IFS cross member and rearward as the frame steps downward. Depending on the frame model you have it may be necessary to add additional material to allow support to the bottom edge of the rail in the area of the step down.

Do I need to purchase only one pair of these to box in the frame on a 1951 F1? I recently purchased a Helix Mustang II IFS kit for my 1951 F1 pickup. Will one of these boxing kits suffice for the whole job of boxing my frame on both sides, or are two of them required?
