'72 Overlander: A little help with the floor
As you can see by the title, I am working on my 72 Overlander. It had rear end sag, and floor rot like many trailers I see here. Other than that the trailer is in very good condition. I've got the old floor out, Rebuilt the frame, reattached the C channel and have one...little...problem. I had a helper with me who took a trip to the dump and my old floor "templates" went with him.
I used the C channel as a template for the curvature and cut the floor based on that, but my issue is this: How can I measure correctly for the Black tank and other plumbing fitting cutouts? My thought is to install the new tank in the new pan, surround it with foam to mitigate movement, than take one measurement off the main frame channel to the center of the flange. And another from the rear C channel to the center of the flange and X marks the spot. I'll do the same with the vent and other fixtures. Does this make sense? And other ideas? I am open for suggestions.
