If anyone was curious what the floor looks like without the sheetmetal here you go. Haha. There were so many holes and oxidation rot in the aluminum it needed to go. New aluminum was going to be to expensive, and I didnt want to scrap it as it's my radio shack. I decided to go with plywood and fiberglass. As I already had enough glass mat, and it was free, it was a no brainer. Now to paint and reinstall all the gear. What was interesting to me was the fact there is wood strips on top of the square tube aluminum, I figured it would have been all metal. And they used enough glue to build it 5 times. But it was made in 69, good quality back then.
