Im doing a shell on complete gutted redo on my 67 caravel
. I am replacing the whole subfloor in sections with plywood, coated with Thompsons water seal and 3m rubberized undercoating on the sides.
My question is in regards to bolting and screwing the subfloor down. In the back, I am getting rid of the bathroom in lieu of a queen size bed. In the rear section, we did not cut and replace the elevator bolts, just shimmed the plywood under the c channel.
Is this ok? Or did we screw up. Do we really need to cut off the elevator bolts and bolt the floor in? I was thinking about just using some self tapping screws and screw them thru the c channel at an angle into the new subfloor and not mess with the old elevator bolts.
Another question, can i just use self tapping screws all along the subfloor into the frame? If any one has done this, any suggestion on what product to use?
ps. The wiring to the trailer lights, (7 pin thingy) is in bad shape. I was thinking it would be a good idea to run new wire thru the frame for the lights. Any suggestion on product?
