Default Side panel lower lip

Hi all

I'm considering doing away with the lower lip on my ali side panels and instead riveting them to the sides of BR 3,4,5,6. My reasoning for this is that my floor is already attached to the underside of these rails with sealant and rivets - I don't like the idea of going through that lot with another load of sealant/rivets.

My worry is that the resultant sharp edge would fall foul of the IVA 2.5mm radius rule. Does anyone know if this would be the case?

Leave enough on the panel and tap over the edge to fold onto floor and silicone it .
Cost : Little as possible.
Thanks : To those who by their generosity my build has progressed.
