Re: Roof Raise ~ Cutting Roof ABOVE Windows ??
you can cut wherever you wish, but generally speaking from my standpoint (of a moron), it is better to leave at least 6 inches or so of the window uprights to weld to. So if you are removing all the interior skin on the walls below the windows, you can weld you new uprights there, but at the top, where the bus ribs start to curve, it is easier to just leave that 6 inches or so of the straight rib up there to weld your new piece to.
When i add a slide to my bus, I am going to remove the entire roof and make if basically flat with new steel after i raise the roof about 18 in. When this is done, the uprights have to have gussets on each rib to the roof rib for strength.
