most of the orginal windows will go back until we save up some more money to replaced them with better ones.

Never seen a roof raise done that way before.

What did you lift the roof with?

Great pics.

Thanks for sharing.

After reading your thread I went with the scaffold to raise the roof. The leveling jacks that i got for the scaffold would only raise it 16 inches and we ended up with a 18 inch raise. the rood seemed to stay really steady and went up super easy.

It has been a while since I have updated. Well we have most of the sheet metal on the sides of the bus done and all the holes in the floor sealed up and painted. Next project have I need to tackle is the transitions at the front and the back. We kind of want to do some kind of sky light at the front transition but want to make sure while driving down the road water isn't being pushed inside. More pics to follow soon!

Cool to see a different method again for splicing the body.

Glad your still making progress.
