I figured out how to zip the rivets off quick fast and in a hurry! I use my air hammer to knock the centers out, then I change it to a flat chisel that I sharpened. Man oh man, it was taking rivets off so fast I got motivated haha. Got all but the passenger side wall removed.

I'm gonna shot in the dark guess and say this is a water pump for the heater yea?

Uh, Shreveport DOES get cold. I used to live in DeRidder, where 50 seemed like the North Pole. Plus, you forget, insulation also helps with keeping it cool in the summer months, and you WANT to keep the windows shut during Skeeter Season.

Finished pulling the interior. Bought a new air chisel from home depot for $45. It's a husky. It makes QUICK work of these rivets. So I'm preparing for the roof raise. I know I have to remove the outer part of the channels, my question is do I have to remove the entire rub rail below it? Or can I just cut the outer skin here?


If not, can I just remove these rivets along the top?

What's the protocol here?

Also, for those interested, this is my "shop". It's an RV storage. Has electricity as well.
