Exclamation It's up!!!

Happy New Year!

Bus roof is up.
My buddy and I raised the roof yesterday and welded all the splices in today!!

Looks great. Is amazing. I'm happy.

I'm tired but thrilled. Isn't that a great combo??

Roof raises are easy peeps. You just have to want to do it.
Isn't that a universal truth?


Anyway, I had to tell somebody!!

I visited Shay's roof raise today, er, yesterday afternoon. It is a fantastic job. He and his buddy ended up raising it 14.5" and it makes the inside look like a cavern. The skining job was first-class. They used aircraft rivets and they look sharp!
