    Does anyone have notes or a diagram showing the front floor hat channels and the locations they should be on the floors? I have some pieces of floor left but it may make it a touch easier if someone had notes available for when they put their new channels in. I want to make sure i have the right locations for the body to mount properly.

    I have a rather crude sketch I did from my original 3B tube in 1974. Will have to convert from pdf to post-tomorrow.
