Ok, reassembly has begun after some test-filling & tweaking the sheet metal for a better fit,  The replacement bottom pan sits nicely now, So form the earlier pictures showing how the old floor pan which originally supported the tank on a series of side-ways stacked set of Homasote boards ( as opposed to 2" x #3" wood slats  such as used by Westinghouse chest machines & others) as you can see that really didn't hold up very well once it got wet,  So I'm adding som 2-1/2" x 1/8" aluminum slats for support of the new floor pan, then I'm adding 2-1/2" of Pink closed-cell foam insulation for the tank to sit on, now this can cause some annoying "squeaking" in a compressor cooled machine as the tank vibrates & rubs on the pink foam when the compressor kicks on & vibrates the tank, ( yes I've gotten complaints of this ) so I've learned to put a thin layer of un-faced bat insulation between the two to help cushion it

Mind you that these pictures are taken as I'm fitting & cutting the pieces to fit,  the tanks outside will be sprayed with a truck bed-liner coating to help prevent condensation from directly attacking the galvanized tank, plus it helps with sound-deadening,  the floor pan will be painted semi-gloss black underneath & also undercoated on the top-side, the gaps between the foam & chassis sides will be foamed / caulked to prevent air infiltration & help reduce sweating on the tanks bottom & insulated sides

The hole near the bottle crown chute is for the tanks drain fitting & the opposite sides hole is for the new condenser coil assembly's refrigeration tubing & electrical feeds from below.

Here's a sneak peek at the new evaporator coil assembly... I could have used a retro-style Vendo V63 dog house style evaporator, but settled on this unit, I've use it in the past on othe projects & it's a very reliable setup , it pulls warm air in the front & exhausts the chilled air out the back & both sides, so it chills the box evenly , plus it's adaptable for either a 'Cap tube system or a TXV setup

That's a pretty "cool" evaporator setup!  Interesting that it's curved/rounded along the ends. That will look nice inside!

That evaporator setup beats the 63 style in so many ways.  happydrinkers 
Can I ask where you buy them?

Well I've gotten the tank back from the bed liner coating shop, so now it canfinally get ready to be re-installed, a hole for the drain, one for the new refrigeration lines & its  rubber seal, the new foam bottom insulation is foamed in Place & the fiberglass mat for the tanks bottom is cut to fit.

unfortunately the water damage from the leaking tank put a bunch of pin-holes in the condensing lines & the condenser itself, so the machine will receive an entire new cooling deck as well...

Well I've got the main / side insulation in (with the help of the old cardboard trick) and the tank in place, the height ( top edge of tank) is perfect thanks to the 2-1/2" of bottom rigid foam board..   next is drilling the liner to accept the lids slide-rails & next we install a backing plate to help support the new evaporator that will hang off of the rear-wall of the tank, then it' son to the refrigeration system.

as a note the main insulation is bare ( no vapor barrier or facing paper) & I used an R-15 / Owen-Corning "Pure Safety"  brand, it's formaldehyde free, with  no Volatile HFC's or organic fumes & it's 65% recycled content, plus it doesn't shed any scratchy glass fibers. it's really soft & easy to work with.

so now the machine has its nice new shiny tank liner!
