Roof Repairs... This is the gap in the front roofing panels that needs to be repaired: http://stlandh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/IMG_8592.jpeg I needed a thin shim of styrene but did not have any so I thought of using a plastic page protector from an old report. http://stlandh.com/wp-content/upl...

Rear Roof I have continued on with adding the rear roofing as a removable section to show the interior detail. I applied the ROCKET HOT ACC for added strength as the entire rear roof assemble would have no other supporting structure. http://stlandh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/IMG_8686.jpeg One of...
