    David, it has been so long since I have seen an original one I can only say the color was very neutral, tan I think, could have been gray. They always seem to get tossed it seems. [V]

    What I do know is that there were two metal clips riveted onto the hard board that fit on the outer edges of the jack base that was used to bolt the spare down. You had to slide the cover forward to release the clips. Maybe unknowing people just lifted it, riping the clips off and then trashed it, who knows!

    You should be able to paint a piece of the hard board used for kick panels and package tray liners sold at upholstery shops.

          The clips are for holding the cover to the invert jack base that holds your tire to the truck floor,they are 2-1/8 "long and 3/4" wide with a slight angle.The circle is 20-1/8" round.
