With the shell back on our attention went to the belly. We contemplated the various insulation choices and decided to go back with “the pink stuff” except ours was white! We stapled it up with stainless steel staples then covered it with bird netting and nailed it up with plastic cap head roofing nails. Hopefully that will keep it from falling down over time.
Our old belly pan aluminum had several big rips in it and lots of corrosion. We just couldn’t see trying to save it. Too many mouse holes. We ordered the aluminum from Air Parts Inc. and were very pleased with their service. The installation wasn’t hard, just uncomfortable. Laying on cold concrete drilling holes and squeezing a rivet gun over and over again was hard on old hands, but….WOW…what a pretty belly!
