Hello everyone,I have removed my wet bath to replace the rear 4' of sub-floor.Are these cuts standard in this channel or did they miss the layout on the rear crossmember.I have to replace member and should I move it back 1/2" or keep all as well and reuse existing holes.I could not find any info here on this.I do not have the bottom channel is it wise to install.

No that is not standard. I would wait and see what everything looks like after it is all taken apart. If it's anything like my 71 there was two sets of bolts, one held the plywood down only ( these were under the channel) and the others went through both the plywood and the channel. I would not change the location of the channel, as this will cause all kinds of alignment problems with the inner and outer skins. get it apart and cleaned up then make your decision if you need to drill new holes or not. You do need the channel, as it is what the bottom of the inner and outer skin rivet to
