Wheel we'll outrigger to shell

I am replacing the belly pan now and I have a need to see how the shell molds around the wheel well outriggers and to me it looks like there will be a gap and my picture of the damaged wheel well does not help me and it looks like they (airstream) filled this gap with caulk! so if you have a picture of yours can I see it? Thank you
Cliff

Here's a 2013 model.... Not sure if this will help you. I took these pics to see how they do it now- in case I have questions when I put my '76 back together...

And for what its worth.... I remember mine being filled with something too. Vulkem? Or could have been the white putty stuff that's on the inside seams of the shell. I guess I was planning on sealing mine back up with Vulkem.

Thank you very much I was thinking of extending the top of the wheel well outriggers to fill the gaps but if necessary I will use a filler but that is the last resort! Thank you so much for the pictures.
