Long day

Hello and thanks for looking...

Roof raise up 14.5"
Ribs spliced.

Now half the one side is skinned!!

Cost some dough but hey.....

Didn't get a chance to snap any pics during daylight.

Did you bend the ribs to make them flat after the raise?

Yes there is a transition. Or there WILL be.
No. I didn't bend any ribs.
I do have some pix during raise.
I should probably start a build thread
