It's only a game. In the larger scheme of things it does not matter a bit.

Rich, who didn't bother watching game or commercials.

Photos of insulation installation- please share how you installed and attached. I am planning to use the Rigid Panels. Home Depot had cut square pieces at 70% off that I picked up last month. Enough for a double layer. Many thanks.

My sons live in Denver. We visit there frequently. The Rockies are spectacular. It is much drier than your beautiful Seattle. And it doesn't have any of those seahawks you like so much.

You have a nice bag of large flange rivets for your new belly pan. Panama Red and I got sore shoulders while drilling and squeezing in these big rivets. He invented a nifty way to push the drill with his floor jack. I found I was able to wedge my elbow against the floor and push the drill with my wrist. And I did purchase an air powered riveter which saved all that squeezing the hand riveter. Tools take some of the load off this tired old body!

You may have it easier as you can carefully flip your frame upside down like the factory does.

Well the rivets sound like a good idea. Until you start reading anything about what Aerowood does. He used on his belly pan install pan head screws and nut plates. Dang why do I read the forums at night.

Well, not all of us can do what Kip does.... I wish, but you know, do what you can.

I'll be using those rivets as well, and then just have an "inspection" section which will be screwed down using SS bolts or large machine screws, probably 1/4-28, where I either tap the frame, or make a rail to tap to, or maybe even those automotive clips to attach screws to. Probably make the inspection area around the water tanks, but everything else will be riveted. I hope I never have to go back under there.

Yeah but the factory used large flange pop rivets on both my 66 and my 86. And both had galvanic corrosion between the steel frame and the aluminum rivet after many, many years. Both new belly pans will outlast me. Your rivets will work fine.

Very happy to report my floor is down. Bolts on with 3m sealant and Loctite. Cleaned up my end c-channels and reusing them.

We removed the gantrys and built a simple frame and set the shell down.

Now we can flip chassis and leverage the car lift.Click image for larger version

Fantastic!

OH Dena:
That looks great.
I finally enlisted my ex-bro-inlaw for past couple days to help out.
Just about to post some pics.
You have chosen the right (and same) products I've been using.
Did you decide on your insulation??
Keep the faith.
Cheers
Del

Nice progress in the positive direction there Glamper Girl!

You are pulling together some very good materials there.
Make sure that you use gloves and clean technic while using the epoxy.
It can become quite irritating if allowed on the skin. Especially with prolonged repeat exposure. Try to find a ribbed roller as well as squeegee for wetting out the cloth. The guy at the fiberglass shop should be able to set you up with the tools. Some ventilation is a good idea while wetting out large areas.

Oh , it wasn't just a game. Rather an excellent Super Bowl that was headed for a super outcome, till it didn't. Had that play worked, it would have been regarded as an out of the box master stroke .

Good you can move on into your project.

I really enjoy your writing and go for it spirit in your rebuild.

Cheers Richard
