You can look through the pics to see other examples.

Good luck!
There you go shelly, It appears each cut is approx. 2.5" wide, and 3' Long, or something thereabouts to give you that curve.
Thanks Lance! Trailer looks Awesome.

BTW, Lance do you know what type of lock/latch goes in the streetside compartment door you have in picture #88?
Looking for a couple of replacements.

Sorry to Hijack,

TIMK

Thanks!

The lock/latch is a standard thing. I took all of them to a good old school Locksmith to have them all keyed alike. Not the same CH751 that everyone else has, though.

Thinking? The pic I posted shows how the corners were done from the factory from the 40s through '68.

Here is a post from Frank.

No need to think. The thinking was done in the 40s.

I have spent the time to take the shell off. My philosophy is do it once and do it right. I'm stumbling here and there but I get back up again.

No one has ever crawled under my trailer to look at my belly pan. That is a good thing.

Steve, I was discussing this with a friend on here the other day, concerned over what someone might say about their belly pan repair... My solution was to invite the first person to look at it, and when they got down on all fours to look, kick them as hard as you can, right in their junk. One or two of those, and NOBODY wants to look at your belly pan any more.

-Red, problem solver...

If you don't want anyone to see a flawed bellypan, just tell them that you have a leaky black tank and it tends to dribble from the pans various perfect seams. They will take your word that it's perfect...
