bottom removal

I decided that before the weather turns I need to look at the frame on my 70 overlander. It appears that each section of the botton aluminum is crimped to the next. Is there a way to get them apart and back together without a tremendous amount of work?

Surgically remove all fasteners, eg: rivets, and screws. Search the archives. There's some guys who took rolling action sequence pictures of the pan removal. The old pans are used for templates if they're in bad shape, and reinstalled if they're in good shape. Mine stayed on, but If I remove them in the future, they will be not cut.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
