Cut section out of rear beltline or remove whole thing?
I am working on replacing the rear floor on my 73 Argosy 24. The rear cross member was bad and I have removed it and have a new one made. I want to remove the hold down plate and replace or at least clean it up and paint it but the rear beltline is in the way. I think the easiest thing to do would to be to just remove a section slightly bigger than the hold down plate do the repair and replace it. Is there anyone that can see a problem with the approach?
