The roof raise looks great! A friend of mine suggested we do that to my bus, but I'm afraid it might be taller than it is long, no go for me

The lower you keep a raise the easier it is to make it look decent!

I'm playing catch up on your build, so how high did you go? We thought about 6-8" but with such a short wheelbase I don't think it would be fun to drive on the wind. Besides, I'm 5-6 and she-s 5-2 so we wont be hitting our heads when it's all done. Some of my friends and children....they should learn to duck

Leave it be, you'll have plenty of headroom.
I did a 10" raise on a 40' bus. I'd go 8" if I did it again.

I only read this forum on Tapatalk app. No using photo bucket or other BS site to then figure out how to upload. You simply upload directly from your phone or tablet. Way easier!
