Replacing damaged banana wrap
The interior restoration on my 1984 34' limited is basically done. However, in doing some frame rot repair in the bumper compartment, I have discovered that some undetermined number of outriggers are rusted away to varying degrees. I have repaired the rusted out portions between the main frame rails, but, before POR-15ing the frame, I'd like to repair any damaged outriggers as well.
I plan on dropping portions of the banana wrap to inspect and gain access to these areas. Like the underbelly, the bana wrap is pretty corroded in certain areas, especially where it comes (or came) into contact with rusting outriggers.
The question: Is the banana wrap made from flat alumuinum sheets? In other words, can I replace the bad banana wrap (just the stright side pieces, not the corner pieces) buy cutting a flat sheet to the right size and just wrap it around the outriggers? Has anyone done this? Is it particularly difficult? What material and thickness do you recommend?
Thanks a bunch.
