    I am looking for a T18/T19/T98 floor/tunnel cover. See pic below of a factory cover.

    Are you interested in a pattern ?
    I made a bunch of them a few years back but have sold all but 1 remaining.
    I can copy that if your interested.
    They were all made directly from an original 1956 CJ-5 T98 trans cover.

    I sold off my 1956 T98 parts about a year or so ago.
    IMHO the cover was not ideal for installing T98-A into my flatfender build.

    I used the original part to make a pattern.
    I sold that last batch of hand made T98 trans. cover patterns for like $10.
    Not positive if I still have one that I can copy or not. I'll check into it.
    Or maybe someone on the forum did not use theirs ???

    I bought one of the patterns, out in the garage in a binder. Have not yet started making my cover yet. I could copy it if you don't have a copy about.

    I had planned to transfer the pattern to thicker 'poster' paper so I could keep the pattern w/o ruining it (planning for my mistakes ahead of time).

    I looked through my pile of WILLYS papers and found none.
    But I just thought of one more place to look when I get back home.

    There is a Phoenix Craigslisting under “CJ5” for the transmission floor covers. He wants $20 for new old stock. You might be able to negotiate shipping to you.

    Apparently I'm all out of "brown bag" patterns. :(
    I must have sold them all since I did not like the way they fit my Flatties.
    Danefranz, I guess its up to you.

    Danefraz, I would appreciate a copy of the pattern also. I have been trying to track down one of these covers for more years than I care to recall. I'd be happy to reimburse you for your costs and trouble. Thanks!

    Sorry all, been off the grid of sorts for last few days.

    Studying for a handful of interviews I had with a potential new company... Passed all of them I think so far, have one more with a guy that'd I'd be managing I think next.

    I'll try and get out to the garage tomorrow and make a 'paper bag copy' (I might be able to use poster board we have around).

    Anyway. Apologies for the delay.
