oooh, I like that roof raise, I've not seen any like that. You were able to keep the windows instead of skinning over everything. Any details about how you did the raise?

Yea I liked the look of the windows. The bus look and wanted to keep them but also have the extra head room. Now the windows are actually eye height. I ended up shooting around 2k solid rivets to hold all the new skin in place.

Iím not sure itís been almost a year and half now since I finished it. I would have to go out and measure it. I do remember it was the closest I could get to factory.
