Skinning a roof raise bus...how we put the skin on the sides.

Hi all,

I'm still a bit behind in converting videos into something usable for YouTube, but here's one I uploaded last night. In this thrilling episode, I show my method for cutting the 18 ga steel skin and installing that on the roof-raised bus. This is a 14-inch roof raise project and, here, I go over how we wrapped the rounded rear corners and installed the side skins.

After doing a few of these, I think I have a good system down. But I'm always open to learning new techniques...so let me know if you have a better way or can think of new tools I can convince my wife we need.

Part 2 - installing more bus skin.

I finally added part 2 to this video series, showing how we handle the skin on the transition where the expansion/lift moves to the area over the entry door and driver's window.
