Do It!!!

I left them one on the pink foam insulation, attached to the bottom side of the sub-floor. Don't remember exactly what I said, but I do remember saying sorry that they had to be back in there, please forgive my welding, and I hope I am dead at this point... Signed and dated after that.

i just did the rear floor on my 34. when i re-installed the belly pan, which overlaps the body as well, i added trempro on the joint. before i re-installed the belly trim, i made sure i have a good bead of sealer on the entire joint, sealer on all rivet holes, plus i added a small bead on top before i installed the trim.. this way, no water can get behind the trim.
BTW earlier models had indeed the body overlap the belly pan.

1974 had the wraps over the top of the body... I thought it was a PO issue when I first saw it. I Trempro'd the stew out of that joint, and the trim. TremPro was squishing everywhere. Lots of mineral spirit clean up...
