why is the c-change in rear different than sides (1972)

1972 sovereign - different c-channel in back where we get rear end separation - why? especially considering all the issues... photos show c-channel
on both sides of water heater...

edit - autocorrect hates c-channel and i canít change title :-/

Because, at that C-channel butt joint, one piece is curved C-channel and the other is straight?



In general manufacturers use stock metal extrusions, and do not fabricate "curved and straight in one piece" parts for things like this, unless there is a clear and overwhelming structural reason to do so IMO.

In this case the C-channel is not structural, and would not prevent rear-end separation, so why go to the expense to have one long "curved and straight" C-channel? [assuming I am seeing this correctly]

PS -- Not sure why a new thread . . . your main reno thread makes the question easier to understand IMO:

thanks otra15 for the explanation. i made a new thread to keep the question and answer atomic; you answered exactly the question i was asking.

i didnít know if there was a protocol about not starting new topic-specific threads to complement an ongoing renovation; i thought being topical to floors/frame would expose the question to the right audience that isnít following my renovation.

No prob . . . different strokes . . .

Context, however, is often very important, and your question would have benefited by being at home IMO.

Threads that wander all over are useful for many years as-is IMO. Why "hide" the details in new mini-threads which fit neatly into little conceptual boxes?
