    • Rear pan fitment continued:

This is my third floor and so far I've never had to contend with a tunnel in my way during fitment. A blessing and a curse I suppose as the tunnel required removal for additional repairs. These conduits weren't too bad to work around.

      Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_8186.JPG Views:	0 Size:	534.9 KB ID:	112081 Some weight added to the center of the floor to reinforce the gentle bow towards the middle as I begin adding screws to lock in the final position.

      Thanks for looking!
