There is a strange triangular rib on each side of the baggage compartment floor. These ribs need to be trimmed to fit. Here I've marked the end of one of them for trimming.

After trimming the ends, fluted the rib to make it lie flat, then clamped it in place.

Drilled the rib using the skin holes as locations. After finishing this, did the right side the same way.
