Things to do before roof raise...

I guess it only makes sense to raise the roof before starting most other projects, if not all. I've removed the seats, gotten rid of the loose rust and went over it with rust converter and oil based paint. Next im going to remove all the inside skins.

What could one do before a roof raise. Just trying to be more constructive.

Apparently having the pneumatic riveter is a big bonus.

If you've got your hat channels and sheet metal all worked out you just need an accurate jacking system, good weather, a few extra hands and a little luck/skill mixture.

Sounds like fun.

Have you removed your interior ceiling skin and insulation? Do you plan to?
