Brainstorming Roof Raising

I was looking at all of reprobate's album pictures

And I had an idea....

Around here, we have street signs made out of perforated galvanized square tubing... (probably 16 gauge)
Instead of welding the square tubing to the window ribs... what about bolting some plates to each side of the galvanized tubing, then bolt through the ribs, then jacking up the roof.... pinning it as you go.
Thinking phillips screwdriver for pins

This is my rough idea in Paint
I call it The Skoolie Jack
Patent pending, of course!

disclaimer: I'm not knocking Reprobate's work, I'm just thinking outside the box

note to self:
stop drinking coffee at bedtime

edit:
I'm not suggesting cutting down street signs!
