Camper Day 10: Raising the Roof

If you haven't been following from the beginning, this camper build starts with Camper Day 1: The adventure begins, or if you just want to see the previous post, have a look at Camper Day 9: More destruction....

Short update today as I didn't spend much time on the camper. I decided to cut out the roof (ceiling) section that Lorraine & I discussed yesterday. For some reason this section of about 30cm depth running back from the original bulkhead was about 1 to 2 inches lower that the surrounding sections. I plan on trimming it down and putting it back in place so that it is flush with the surrounding section. This will make it the same as the roof/ceiling that I discussed yesterday which needs to be fitted in the over cab area.

Removing it was hell. I had trimmed it back where I could see it was one piece, but due to not being able to see inside I couldn't tell exactly how it was fixed inside. I ended up cutting it back where I will be trimming it anyway. Once I managed to remove the section and could see the way it had been fixed, I found that I had to chisel the sealant/glue off. Hopefully I get some of the same stuff for the bits I have to put back, as it is virtually indestructable.

The pictures below show the area after the removal of the center section and the loose section which will be fitted back in place. In one picture I am holding the panel up to demonstrate where it was.
