I just acquirred the AS and it is 60mi. away so I am not sure if the center only portion of the belly pan can be removed.I assume I will need to remove if I want to use those elevator bolts like you mentioned earlier.Thanks for your help. Steve

I only removed the bolts from the wheel wells forward to get the first 2 pieces of floor in. This helps keep the shell from falling off of the outriggers and allows enough flex to get the floor under the C-channel.
The compound curved corner pieces of the banana wraps need to be removed. They are typically put on with pop-rivets.
The straight pieces that are buck-riveted to the bottom edge of the trailer sides can, in some cases, remain attached to the side panels. If the center-strip of your bellypan comes off separate from the parts that curve up to the side walls, you would remove the center piece, and then drill out the rivets that hold the side wraps to the bottom of the outriggers, leaving the bucked rivets intact. The side wraps will hang from the walls like a loose skirt, and you can move them over enough to get to the bolts at the ends of the outriggers.

Happy New Year,
Rich the Viking
