Seems that rivets are worn loose or detached anyway. Or tackle rear floor first? I'm open for advice...thanks Bryan O
I would suggest removing the entire belly pan; it's the only way to know the condition of the rest of your frame, and then you can make all the repairs at once. Also, read the threads about changing the design of the rear wall/trunk area to eliminate the water intrusion that rots out the back ends of these trailers.
I agree with David's suggestion to start a thread showing your work as you go. It's the best way for all of us to learn.
