I have a 64 Airflyte. There is a 7 foot flat bar that is attached to the wood frame below the front window. Where does the second flat bar go? Help. . I don't seem to have a picture of it before my tear down.
I'm sure someone willknow before I get home, but I'll check after work. I know the one bar lies on top of the 1X2 that the table mount screws to, but I have no recollection of a second one. There is a 1/4 plywood strip that is attached outside of the 1X2 that the window bottom mounts to, maybe underneath it? Not sure.
When I disassembled my 63 there were no metal bars, just framing. There were sheet metal strips at the corners of the large dinette window framing to reinforce the frame. Maybe they did something different in 64 or that mine were removed.
I can't find the thread now either. I'll dig out my photos this afternoon... The flat bar (there is only one in mine) is mounted along the top edge of the horizontal frame where the table mount is. It runs on the 1-inch side of the 1X2 which goes all the way across the front, one down from the bottom edge of the window. It should stiffen the frame against the flexing of the table as it is rocked side-to-side some whenever one gets in or out of the dinette...
I have a 64 1500 and found two of the steel bars. The first wast in the front just at the table level where the table screws to the plywood. The second was in the ceiling on the back ceiling rib where the roof begins to make its curve down to the back. I hope that might help. Mark

my 61 airflyte has 2 wooden bars, the top is a brace to help with the weight of the window, the bottom is what the table mounts to, is that the bar you are talking about? is it the bottom piece in this pic?
