got some more work done on Burley today I HATE RIVETS

It wasn't bad the way i did it is I knocked the center metal pin through the rivet and then used a rolled chisel in my air hammer started steep with the chisel and once under the head just rolled the chisel to lift and shear the rivet took about 10 minutes first panel and about 20 min for each additional row not as young as I once was.
decided Im going to do a roof raise only going to go about a foot or so maybee 15 inches want to stay under 12'4" need a little more height because there is going to be a bed in the rear that will raise up into the ceiling when not in use and also I'm going to loose about 4-5 inches for insulation.

I have a question has anybody ever put a 2 ton suspension under a short bus or even a one ton rear axle and front axle I would love to make this 4x4.

I HATE RIVETS PS, how can I make my pics come out right side up
thanks
