Help!!

I am replacing the floor on my 1971 Overlander and it seems that the rear radius left and right aren't symmetrical? Is this normal or do I need to make.them match? The fronts are the same. Any advice would help. Thanks!!

They should be symmetrical.

I have an extensive construction background and maybe I'm over thinking this issue but input would be helpful. Thanks again

Not to contradict Colin, but the important thing is that your new floor piece lines up with the outside edge right? So you can secure the C-channel?

I stopped making any assumptions about symmetry or uniformity on my project. It started when I re-fabbed the wheel wells. I figured they be the same dimensions...nope.

The problem therein lies. Some of the C channel when I disabled it we're not.even touching the frame and none were bolted the frame just through the plywood. It's nothing like home or mobil home construction. Seems as if there are a lot of variables in these.
