Now, somehow, I've got to remove all of the side panels in one piece so that I can use them as a template for the new birch panels that I will be installing. Easier said than done. I started removing all of the nails and staples from the side panels when I decided that I really needed to start with the ceiling. I can say one thing for sure....this roof didn't leak. These ceiling panels were really in there....glued, stapled, nailed and in a bracket....and they were solid too or as solid as a 1/8" panel can be. I was really having a hard time, but I continued...this was not going to get the better of me. I got a couple of panels off and realized that while yanking on the ceiling panels, wood bits were falling down the v-neck t-shirt I was wearing and making their way down my overalls to you guessed it! Must take a pause to wiggle these pieces down the pant leg. Holy crap its getting hot at this point. It was like 85 in Nashvegas yesterday. Isn't it only April? Moving on to the side panels. It took a whole lot of wiggling and staple removing to get just one of the panels off when I started itching like crazy. My arms and chest were on FIRE. While I was yanking on the ceiling panels, not only were wood bit falling down my shirt, so was the insulation. I literally had to run to the house and immediately shower. Only half a days work. At this rate I'm never going to finish on time. I need the Restoring a Vintage Camper for Dummies book....anyone out there have it?
So here is where I left things yesterday. I have no doubt today will be a better day. Yes I'm wearing long sleeves and pants! No wood bits going near my cha cha today.
