Sounds like you are making great progress. Keep it up !

I got a start on dropping the belly pan on my Argosy last weekend, hoping to finish dropping it tomorrow. Some welding will definately be required.

Also, those buck rivets don't come out nearly as easy as the smaller pop and intermediate rivets do :-)

Thanks for the tip on the 'Ace galvanized metal and aluminum primer'. I'll have to take a look at that.

Finally done stripping the paint!!
It seems that if I say 1 day to do something and it takes 3 maybe I should say I'll be one with the camper in 1 week!😁

Finished priming the belly wraps. I sanded with 150 grit then sprayed with ace gal and alum primer. I'll post a pic tonight.

Not sure what we're looking at here. Are those black things your tanks? They look crazy thin! What type and capacity?

Looking Nice !

I just finished dropping my belly wraps today. Pan and Belly wraps are off on mine. I just need to remove a little more flooring and start cleaning up the frame.

Ok thanks. I haven't figured out my tanks yet but want to plan ahead. Mind sharing more pics of how you installed them?

The floor is screwed to the 2x4's running down the center. Drilled and installed an elevator bolt. I tried to get it flush with floor to see if I need to use a forcner bit to countersink. I broke the elevator bolt! Yep I will need to use the bit to make them flush. I used lock nuts. I was surprised to the holding power😄

Matt: Quick Question - Did you remove the wheel wells entirely? If so, how dow they come out?

Also, what's the trick for removing those bolts from the floor? Did you use an Angle grinder with a cutoff wheel ?

You are a month or two ahead of me in the redo work you are doing, so following this thread is a perfect tutorial ! Thank you for posting and sharing all this great information.
