Ken J-Silicone instead of Loc-tite on screws, is this better for some reason? Is stainless without any barrier is OK against the aluminum?
Pinkflamingoes-I never got an answer on the texture(I think it is age and wear on mine, now that I have been under her several times!) Good ideas on the ramps...
So, It is easy to loose questions here if the thread goes a differnt direction...so I will bring it back to my previous questions about replacing the belly pan in 48" sections as previously started by malconium...

This peice could be the peice that the 2-48" pieces are attached to...I don't think you would need a cover peice if the backing peice they attached to was 2" wide running along the frame, but what this is and how it attaches to the frame is another story (Steel welded to the frame and then a barier)? Also, has anybody thought about using ALL srews instead of screws and/or rivets so the panels can be dropped easily? I was thinking of the galvanized ones with the rubber washers behind the metal washer, so no steel touched the aluminum? Lastly, what about the curved sections on the corners? How are those repaired/replaced?
