1975 31ft. Inter. Rear Bath, Belly Pan Photo

Working on a 1975 AS 31ft. International replacing the rear floor in a rear bath. The floor is almost complete and I'll soon be ready to replace the belly pan over the grey and black water tanks. The problem I'm having is there was no belly pan when I purchased it and I don't have a clue as to what it should look like. Would there be someone out there that has a rear bath International that would mind taking 2 or 3 photos at different angles of the belly pan. The factory manual shows nothing and my other AS is a center bath. I got a good idea of what it should look like but I would like to make it look factory fresh if I could. Any help would be appreciated.

Big John,

I recently did a sag repair on my 31'r and had to remove the belly pan. The orginal belly pan simply wrapped down and under the tanks as one piece. I decided to be a bit diferent and I cut the original pan at the forward edge of the tanks and then covered them with polished aluminum diamond plate. I also fabbed up a new under bumper compartment with it. As you know there is about a 2" drop to go under the tanks and for me it was easier use the diamond plate than get the orginal pan to wrap down. To cover the transition I made a 45 piece out the left over diamond plate and riveted every thing in place. I can send some pictures if you will send me your e-mail address. One thing for sure, belly pan removal is much easier that replacement.

Dave

Dave I like the idea of the diamond plate. I was thinking about fabricating a box like pan out of the 2024-0 aluminum amd covering up the 2 tanks that way but your idea sounds better. I would like to see some pics if you don't mind. My email address is john_owens@bellsouth.net Thanks for the advise. John

Question polished aluminum plate

I'm considering fabricating a shower stall and would like to use polished aluminum plate. Any ideas where I can purchase it? Would also like to use old salvaged skin if available. Thanks! MC
