I'm trying to figure out exactly what's going on in this belly pan replacement:
1956 Flying Cloud - Belly Skin
but I'm not sure I'm quite understanding it.
So in the first picture, the description is: "I removed the skin starting 1 foot in from all around the edge - this gave me a place to attach the new skin."
That makes sense to me, I think. Also, what tool is that being used to cut the aluminum? Then, in that second picture, the caption is "In front between the tongue frame, I formed a piece that went up under the front skin much like Airstream did all the way around and then formed it tight to the frame, eliminating the original gaps that allowed much of the dust and rocks to get inside.". What happened to that original 1 foot perimeter of old belly skin that was used as a place to attach the new skin? is it directly under that? I'm a newbie faced with belly skin replacement, I'm just trying to understand what to do. thanks!
