72 Safari Removing Banana Wrap in front of battery compartment

I am in the process of fixing the floor under the bathroom and I decided to remove all the belly skin in the back of the trailer. Things were going fairly well until I go to the piece by the battery compartment. I managed to get it off around the battery compartment but then between the battery compartment and the fender well it is put together differently and it won't move.

The aluminum is sort of in the way because there is a bit of damage I need to fix by the battery compartment.

Any suggestions ... Pictures attached

Take out enough rivets to peel back the side panel skin a little. You'll find some hidden rivets unde that skin that attaches the bannana skin. Thus, my motto, "NO ^%$&* hidden rivets!!!!"

My 72 had hidden screws that had been screwed into the back of the wheel well area. They were also covered in vulkem so they were hard to see. It was a bear to get em out. Good luck.
