I'll see what I can do tonight once I get a little further, it really doesn't look any different and I'm realizing how filthy this thing is and wishing I'd washed it before I drug it in the shop but whatever... :). I'm not going to put the jacks on until I put sealant around the trim since it'll be easier but I need to get the bottom trim on before I cut open the tube, long dumb process.... not long ago I got the last of the factory 7/94 butyl tape removed on this side so I can get to reinstalling the trim! That took a while, somewhere shy of 1 minute per inch to pull off the membrane on a 12' span... my thumbs are sore...

Very similar to the last picture a week ago... I didn't get the screws in the bottom part of the lower trim that's hanging down since I need to get it jacked up first, but before I put the jacks on I need to seal the roof which I'll be doing here shortly...

I was just on the roof resealing that... I don't want to think about what is going on under the membrane on the passenger side rear over the table... it's pooched and crunchy but sturdy? We're just going to try to forget about that... the rest of the roof is solid though so there's that...

I don't wanna!

That will wait until late summer or next winter... or the year after that, it's sealed now so shouldn't get any worse...

Here she is all up on it's own 4 feet! All sealed and should be ready to go, probably put it on the truck this weekend after this weather system moves through... Don't know how obvious it is but I could have done better on the seal job but my hands were done yesterday with the caulking gun and I was very over it, whatever, it should be sealed, probably went overkill but hey...

Now that I know I have a little time before the camping trip I will likely reseal the clearance lights over the front window, I did reseal the passenger side too for the most part, at least anything that looked sketchy. Oh, I do have a couple reflectors to install to plug the holes where their screws were before...
