I think what you are asking is how the plywood is joined together right? It is joined underneath by strips of plywood (sorry I don't have the exact dimensions) you need to remove part of the belly pan to access this area.
also this is how I removed my elevator bolts. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f36/1965-rehab-71458-3.html#post924149 check out my thread post #32.
St Pierre sorry if I hijacked your thread, nice work BTW.

Tracker You may have to remove the sub floor to the first joint . At that point you will find two scabs at a frame cross member . As marzboy said you will have to pull the belly pan . Sounds harder than it is GOOD LUCK . Marzboy not a problem all help is good.

Taillight rebuilding complete

Completed the rebuilding of the taillight housings. One thing I learned, if you think you have it sanded smooth enough, sand some more!

We have checked all our wiring, that looks good. We have pre-wired for the microwave my wife can't live without! All lights inside and out check out good. Is there anything I am forgetting before I put the insulation and the interior walls back on?

Our '65 Safari still has the original TV antenna. Does anyone still use this original TV antenna? Seems like most of the pictures of Safari's we see do not still have the original antenna.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

Hahaha I know! I have to really work on my fiberglass/bondo skill. Your light houseing looks great.

I think I'm going to use a little acetone and some lego pieces to make a glue for the cracks, and then cover with Fibertech by Evercoat. It's a reinforced polyester body filler, which should have enough strenght to do what I need.
Thanks for the info
