    Bad day today. Sikaflex!!!!
    I riveted a sheet of ally onto the roof and sikaflexed it for extra strength before bonding the solar panel to the ally. Though this would make for easier removal. I was wrong as even after I buzzed the rivets off from the inside and sliced part of the sika with a long sabre saw blade it was like concrete. Nibbled away to no avail and had to resort to leverage mixed with sabre saw. The ribs are as soft as cheese and now Iíve got a hideous run of creases on the rear ribs. And to cap it all off my lazy tongue riveter has decided to wimp out on the sealed rivets I want to temp plug the holes with!
    I was expecting a bit of flex in the roof when removing rib 2 but now Iím even more concerned about ripple in the centre so Iím going to leave that in. However:::
    Right now the Open Air roof seems more appealing as I might have to resort to vinyl anyway.
    Cup of tea time I think.

    It's a great advert for fixing the solar panel and testament to doing a good job! Hope a brew brings a solution....

    Knocked it on the head for today, work at 16:00 so had a nap.
    Woke up and the open air is back on the agenda. Little bit more fabricating but irons out todays problems and I can still permanently carry the solar panel up top - just shift it back a bit.

    Always fancied the idea of a roll bar roof on the van like in a Dolly.
