Belly Pan & Banana Wrap Removal

Ladies & Fellas

I have been granted an early fathers day gift. Yep, I get to work on the new airstream all day sat/sun. I want to be prepared so I get alot of work done. Please excuse all the questions; work focus will solely be on the removal the Belly Pan & Banana Wrap.

1. What is removed/started on first. Pan or Wrap
a. Any starting point or is it all the same
2. How do you get the Banana Wrap off? The rivets on the lowest trim piece get drilled out and it's tugged loose? What size bit to use?

3. Not sure what's next, any help would be appreciated Thanks Pat

1. Wrap
start any place
2. take off the trim then drill out the rivets holding the wrap. 1/8 inch drill bit.
3. Then you can unrivet the pan.

If you want to just take the belly pan off and not remove all the banana wrap just start drilling the rivets out at the back and work your way forward

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..
