That "hole over the fuel tank" needs to stay somehow accessible. It is the only way to get to the float and electrics without fully dropping the tank. Not a fun time.

We used 1 inch ''DOW'' styrofoam to insulate the floor a few days ago.





And this, my friends, is pretty much how we left it. I'll post more pictures here as we go. We're pretty busy right now with school and all that so it might be slow, but worry not. It will be done!

Feel very free to comment or ask about anything you see here. Your knowledge is more than welcome

The rectangle of screws behind the fuel fill is mine. Just a piece of sheetmetal screwed & glued over the original opening. Actually, I made it a little larger to accommodate the new 44 gallon tank as I recall. It will wind up being inside a storage area under my sofa/bed. Probably a little trickier if it is out in the middle of the floor but still pretty much a necessity.
