I intended to remove the shell the way many of you have suggested in other posts and built a gantry before I noticed my shell doesn't seem to fit the patterns of other models--or I'm just confused.
I was expecting to detach the shell from below the C-Channel, lift it off, pull out the frame and set the shell on the ground while I worked on the frame. But, it looks like my shell doesn't attach to the frame the way I expected it to. Instead of attaching at the C-Channel, it continues and attaches to the bottom of the frame. I see I can't set it down on the ground. Is that normal?
My sons have suggested I cut a four-foot-wide section out of the floor and attempt a "shell-on" rehab
--which many of you have said is not the way to go.
So, is this shell attachment just a '67 thing? Am I missing something. How should I continue?
P.S. I am new to this and just getting started but I have already benefitted MUCH from reading your wisdom and experience. Thank you!
