Belly Pan replacement
Im new to the forum, looking forward to chatting. I just purchased a 72 Argosy 22' and Im full of questions. Here's my first! The interior and floor is sound. I pulled the carpet and no signs of rot. The belly pan is rough in places and I have some rust in the wheel wells, and behind the tongue. How hard is it or how feasible is it to replace the belly pan, and sand blast the rust and rebuild with the flooring in place?
Many thanks!

It is very feasible, I am currently in the process of doing this. It is not fun, but it is doable. lots of time on your back and all the isulation has to be removed. My belly pan was also in poor shape and I am replacing with new aluminum.

Its doable but pretty tough. The belly pan was the easiest part of my project so far.
