Bansil, I stand corrected...
When the shelf is still completely riveted.. It is less that I don't have enough room for the tools but more that my short arms and well... my chest... don't allow me enough room... lol
I went in after supper and realized that I had a most of the front rivets off but where there was an overlap, the rivets were still holding the shelf. Once I got that last pair of front rivets separated, the shelf came down more and I was able to access the back ones. They came off quite easily
A bit too easily.
I asked one of the kids to go get my husband so that he could support the shelf while I did the last rivets and he sent a message back that he was finishing up the kitchen. Was I smart enough to wait for him? Of course not!
I went ahead and once they heard a loud boom coming from the bus as the section fell to the floor on one side... then they all ran out of the house.
After ungluing some of the carpet glue and popping a few last rivets left between the section, That section is now down on the floor with brackets intact
I also realized that with winter coming... I need a good light source!
