You'll have a nice clean line on the rear end! (how often do you get internet strangers complimenting your rear end, anyway?)
Yeah, I could imagine there would be significantly more structural components on your bus.

I once sat on a freshly painted railing that left a nice clean line on my rear. Needless to say, I received many comments about it that day! None from an internet user though.

Yep....A "tallish" kind of person would definitely endure many headaches with the original roof height.

You've got me excited!
I ordered up the "hat" channel...
And I'm thinking I'll use the all-thread method too.
THANKS for posting this. Keep up the great work bro.


Edit- did you do all that with one hacksaw blade? You got skills man.

Skills and good blades.

I use Milwaukee saws all blades. Better than most.

Thank you so much guys...I'm glad you like the videos!

I hope this inspires others to follow through with their ideas of raising the roof and follow their dreams!

The all-thread method worked fantastically and was very simple and cheap to construct. It held the roof nice and steady while it was being jacked up. So far, I've only put about $75.00 in materials to do this.

The great thing about editing is you didn't see the 2 blades I broke. ;)
