A raccoon almost destroyed my belly pan or I should own up and say I almost did it by leaving my old mower battery by the trash which the creature used as a step to get to the trash and knocked over the battery spilling the acid which I found this afternoon when I got up! All cleaned up and no damage!!! Caravel is in the front now and close to the garage and trash cans. Would be the baking soda that I forgot the last trip to the store! So much for my prepper abilities!

Cliff,
Did you find that the shell sits on the floor except for the back which has a channel for the floor to fit into? Everything went in OK until the back and that &%###* channel. It looked like an afterthought to me, someone thinking a channel would be good there.

The channel that you are referring to I believe is a piece of angle aluminum that like the belly pan sits under the floor and against the c channel between the shell and the c channel and if it is I replaced mine with a piece that extends past the frame (still on top of the frame) instead of 1.5 X1.5 I made it 1.5 X 4 so the water drips into the belly pan and not on the frame and floor! Since you did shell on you will have to set it between the c channel and shell then set the floor on it which will be a pain but you have more patients than I and can do it!
