Hi everyone!

Mostly going to be just throwing up pictures of what I got going on but if you see any fatal errors in my build please say something

Currently as of this post I am past the 16" roof raise and finishing up the floor rust removal and paint process on the inside.

Ceiling panel removal

Here I am just removing these metal panels on the roof and roof raise prep.
I really wanted to upcycle these panels for something but after getting a surplus of higher quality steel sheet those plans were scrapped and they went off to the scrap yard for recycling.

re-Skinning

Here i am installing the new skin for the outside using 16 gauge galvanized sheet steel. I know the better alternative is using "Galvaneel steel" but frankly its impossible to find and mostly a special order item where I am at. Personally the price was not worth it so I figured some elbow grease to prep these panels in the future was a good way to save some cash. I could have also gone with 18 gauge steel but its just felt a little flimsy for my taste.
