Looking good. That is a lot of work (and I am ADHD, wanted to get on with the other stuff), looks like it is going great now. I admire anyone that goes to that much work and gets it done.

[QUOTE=New2Skool;167090]Gents and possible ladies.
First, thank you all for the help.
Second, I claim victory to this round of skoolie battles.

I tried cardboard and had a hard time but, thin paper not much unlike butcher paper worked perfectly.

Mudda, first thank you for responding. I have watched your videos up to the lift series. Naturally, I should have paid closer attention to newer videos. For that, I am sorry and thank you for the work you do and videos you make. You do great work and have helped me along the way more than you could know.

Here are the end results.
The next step is to find a window to put in the opening.
Thanks again.
I added more structural bracing as well. I am going to double up and over lap a few sheets on the interior as well to try replicate the original design.

It looks like you figured it out nicely....good job!

Thanks for watching my videos...I'm glad they proved useful with your project. It's really cool to see so many folks now, using my method of raising the roof. It was the simplest most effective tooling I could think of that the average do-it-yourselfer could easily fabricate at home.

Way to go man....keep up the good work!

Very nice! I love the roof raises and I will use all the ideas when it comes time for mine.
