belly pan in sections or one piece?

As I cannot find aluminum in the 60 1/2" width that my original one is I imagine the way to go is 4'x12 sheets cut into sections. I would appreciate any input re this method, sizes etc.

Thanks,

Robert

Your pan is somewhat longer then my 21 footer but I pieced mine together cutting 4x12 sheets of .040 5052 in 60" widths. Easier for me to handle that size sheet and makes it much easier to access the tanks etc.

So basically you are mounting the pan horizontally in 4 ft.x60" sections ?
Since I have to modify bp for tanks that hang down about 3" this seems like the best way if there is no urgent reason to run 2 single sheets seamed in the middle to run the length of the trailer.

Where did you obtain 4x12 sheets of .040 5052 in 60" widths and how did you cut it (no shear)? How many sheets does it take to make belly pans for 22' AS?

AirParts is my aluminum supplier. I use .025, for it is easier to work around the curves.
