Rear End Separation in Home Stretch
I hope I can get some more advice as I wrap up this part of the project. The only thing left is attaching newly installed plywood floor to the c channel, which I am going to reinforce some aluminum bar stock.
I have sanded and cleaned up the frame and used Por 15 on it. I replaced the rusted out rear hold down plate, put Pva 10 mil tape over all the new steel to separate the different metals.
I replaced the floor with ¾ marine plywood epoxied the end grain in about a foot then used screws and elevator bolts from vintage trailer supply
My question and concern
Between the plywood and the c channel I have about a 1/8 gap maybe a little more on one side with the frame floating. Do I just start bolting it up or do I jack it up to make contact between the plywood/frame combo, and the c channel level up, and then bolt it.
Anything I should know or be concerned about as I do this?
I have come to far to mess this up. Please any advice would be great.
Many thanks in advance
