Floor pans are certainly a reality but two issues

 

1. Despite lots of guys saying they needed / wanted sills, only one set has been orderd so that makes me wonder if there really is a market for 521 sheet metal.

 

2. I need a donor vehicle to use as a template to have the floor pans made.  A little nervous about investing $ in #2 if #1 doesn't pan out (pun intended).

Facebook is your best bet. Spam the datsun truck groups. Price seems good! 

 

Would be a shame is these parts didn't take off. Looks like a product.

That's because you didn't offer to hand deliver & install them for free.  Does the main section have the subtle curve or are they flat?

I think the price for the sills is a good one - surprised people haven't picked them up if needed.

Hahha. Possibly.

 

Answer to your question, subtle curve like factory.

Well, then it seems like a great price if the fit is also good.  Thankfully mine don't need replacing, but if they did I would be in for a set!

Can you make something to put int between the rear wheels and the front of the bed to match the rockers under the doors?  IE something similar to what BigTanker did?  I would be all over a set of those.  Like so:

Yup these truck beds should have came from the factory looking like that....

 

Those sills will work good for that mod....  I had planned on doing this, so I'll be looking to buy them soon too....

I played with this photo a long time ago, before I made my 520 ute as I wanted to see what it looked like.

This is what I did before the photo above.

I have said the same thing for a decade, they should have come like the second photo in my opinion.

Drew those are welded in by a custom shop. I wish he would make more but he is kinda of eccentric.

Seriously, one of the best mods to a 521. Makes it look a whole lot less farm truck.

Well, so far I've sold a grand total of two sets so your order would help. 😜  

 

I am in the midst of a basmement renovation so for the short term, not a lot of time to design a filler piece for the bed sides but I'll give it a go maybe by mid July. Probably just need to design an "end" onto a regular rocker panel and I'd be close.

That's what I was envisioning as well. 

Dave, I just fired off an email to you for some panels.
