'64 Belly Pan removal
I got the Bambi II home and ripped into it yesterday morning. I have the rub strip and front two corner pieces removed from the front underside. I cannot figure out how to drop the larger sections of the aluminum belly pan as they seem to be tucked too far up behind the front wall between the tongue frame. How high up does this thing go? I was on a roll...
I am used to removing rivets and replacing them in Airstreams...worked on Dad's for years. I just need to get this pan dropped so I can assess the frame rot situation and get it repaired.
And yes, I did find floor rot in the Bambi II. I removed all of the old flooring (disgusting brick vinyl tiles!!) and uncovered some issues. Plan is to gut the interior and assess some more, replacing part or all of the floor. Still need to get that belly pan off.
Wondering if the frame repair will be easier if the floor is removed first, or if the frame can be repaired with floor in place?
Hope someone out there can help with some of this...
