1968 Safari Floor Bracing

I am in the process of restoring the interior of a 22' Safari and would like to see a schematic of the floor bracing under the plywood flooring. Does anyone know where I may find one on this site or any other site?

Drawings like that are long gone.

Take the underbelly off.

You then will see the complete chassis layout, as well as it's condition.

It's not unusual to find considerable rust, etc.

No problem and good luck with everything.

I also noticed you were new here. Welcome to the forums, and don't be shy asking for more help.

If you look closely at the plywood, you will see 1 inch dia. bolt heads. These are called elevator bolts. They go into the cross members as well as the main frame. They hold the plywood to the frame. They will show you exactly where the cross members and main frame rails are.

Good Luck!!
