Help - How to re-skin end cap and front post roof raise?
Hey Skoolie Friends,
Been a while! We got married, had a baby and put our project on hold for a bit. Back at it now and back to hitting our knowledge wall. We successfully completed our roof raise, decided to go unconventional with hybrid plywood to metal siding instead of sheet metal so we will have tiny house feel with real house windows from inside. We still have the back and front of the bus to close up, and unfortunately the plywood was shy of the top a couple inches for the sides so we need to figure that one out.
Here's my question, maybe it will help others too, from researching on youtube other conversions am I right that we should use:
VHB tape on bottom to hold in place while working on back.
22 guage sheet metal is bendable and we can use that for the curved back ends
16 guage is what we are likely attaching to, and could be used for any flat sides if needed
3/16 button head stainless steel rivets are what we want
Dap Extreme Stretch Calking? Flexes and doesn't break
How would you close that front top section pictured?
What kind of rivet gun should we get? Rentable some place?
Any other suggestions? First time working with metal or riveting so any advice, videos, help appreciated.
