8 on 6.5"

It's the same pattern Ford used until '96 on 3/4 ton trucks. Makes it super easy to find alternative wheels.

'97 on are metric

So I have come across a problem I have many cancer spots on my truck and bending metal for some of these spots is out of the question so is bondo or fiberglass better for a seamless and as close to original as possible. ( I don't want the thud when knocking on the body)

They're tough to remove. A driven bit usually gets them, but with the heads stripped you'll probably have to drill them out.

The early F series trucks had a spot of weld to hold the hinges in place.

You could pull the pins if you just want to remove the doors, but those aren't usually easy either - I ended up drilling mine out.

Your '50 F2 is the same color as my '49 F4. I've got the cab repainted on mine, I used Du Pont Nason Urethane in Holly Red. It is very close to the original color and available as a premixed color, so it was a little cheaper than custom mixed paint.

Nice I'm planning to repaint it a matte black so the red cab and yellow bed just don't match and I invisioned it a black all along
