'77 31ft Excella floor replacment

I am pulling the shell off of my 31 ft excella. I notice that the wood floor goes into some alumunum channel not right on the out riggers. How do I go about getting the new floor in? I am pulling the shell to repair frame and put new wood in. any guidance please

As I am sure that you have read other threads talking about shell off work, I will only highlight the three biggies I found when doing work on the '78 Sovereign (did not do a "frame off").

1. Keep as much as the flooring together as possible to use as a pattern.

2. Mark EVERYTHING with a magic marker on at lease three adjacent corners. Back AND front if possible.

3. Pictures, Pictures, and more Pictures - showing locations and markings. It's easy to "forget" how they go back together.
