Default F-805F-1 Floor spacer

Hi guys,

I wondering if anyone has riveted the F-805F-1 Floor spacer straight to the support angle and nut plates? rather then through the whole lot including the rear floor assembly? I'm thinking it would be easier to remove in the future if need be. Also I'm assuming the F-830C-1 floor stiffeners are left off the floor so it can be put in place? or can I get away with putting them on?

Cheers
Gibbo

Timely as I just pulled these off my shelf today and wondered pretty much the same thing. I will be checking back to see what the responses are.

Yep, that's exactly what I did. I figured if I ever had to take out those floor panels I didn't want to be drilling out the nut plates as well.

No one answered this part of the question. What did you guys do, F-830C-1 stiffeners before installing the floors or afternoon? Seems like it would be hard to do after installing, which is how the instructions read.

Thanks
