Quick and easy roof panel removal!

This is a way I found to get rivets/roof paneling down quickly and easily. Hope it helps!

Nice, if you're not already, lease wear hearing protection. I am losing my hearing and have medium tenittis.

Ok, that seals it. An air chisel is definitely the way to go for this part. He made that look super easy. I am willing to work hard to get good results, but no sense in using muscles where compressed air can do the work for me. ;)

Same here. I was a Marine Technician for over 30 years not wearing protection. Same story. Hearing protection definitely worth the trouble.

By the way, great video!! It's the same technique I was planning myself. So nice to see others do the video work!!
