Once again my one day off & it's pouring outside
If I tried loosening the tarps the wind would probably carry them for a 100 miles

Re: Senza Legno, Senza Pontilli

I just got back to checking the skoolie site and finaly caught up with my backlog reading. I finaly got to see your roof raise. Nice, I like it better than mine. I like how you kept the back attached. Sorry to hear about your welder and back. My welder gave out too, but it gave me a reason to buy an better welder.

Thanks, I thought it would a lot easier & less time consuming making 1 cap instead of 2 & easier to skin.

If we had raised our roof a couple feet, maybe you would need cross bracing. My bus had bracing between the supports above the windows. I just re-attached them after the raise. After the sheet metal was riveted on, it is very secure.

I understand what your saying what I was referring to was adding cross bracing to the fwd supports I welded in, I tried to load some pics but the sight won't let me
