Destruction Day #11

The belly pan has now completely been removed and is folded up and waiting to be used as a pattern for the new belly pan. The rivets have been removed for some time, but I simply haven’t had time to finish removing it until now.

Since it was in such bad shape I decided to cut it on either side of the axles and then just keep it around to use as a template once it is time to button up the old gal. The cutting just took a few minutes and was very easy. I think I need to work on my straight lines. 😉

I then slid out the front and rear pieces and folded them up into quarters for easy storage.

Things are starting to look really nice!

    I am restoring a 67 Sovreign and need some advise on the rear frame replacement. Mine has a rear bath and most of the frame under just the bathroom is gone. I rigged a temorary frame bolted on to tow the trailer home from Florida. I have copied some of your pics as well. What guage is the metal and are there any templates around so I can replace it as it was. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, John
