Are you going to put something over the screws as protection even thought they are countersunk?




Yes. I needed to get this area level, (countersunk screws), so I could cover it. With the hex heads sticking up, that would be a problem trying to put something there.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Seeing as they'll be under the roof material you could just put a strip of gorilla tape over them.

When I did the roof on my TT rebuild I used gorilla tape in the sheeting seams and edges, based on a recommendation from the local RV guys. Worked well.

If you're still not happy with the stability of your ladder, a little extra bracing could be in order......

Yeah, it doesn't move...

I finally got all the old gunk off of there, and gave things just a very quick light sanding with 36 grit to remove the final remnants of what is probably, nearly 40 year old, hard as a rock, Dicor.

Even the other side is finally cleaned and lightly sanded. Next I can add some fiberglass near the sides to close up the areas that I had to cut to make the old fiberglass bend and fit the way it needed to.

I cut off the excess of the screws on the inside on both sides above the pilot and co-pilot's seats. That will allow insulation to be installed there.

The front cap above the seating area had virtually no insulation from the factory, and as such, transmitted a lot of heat into this area.

I also added a few layers of fiberglass on both sides of the coach above the front seating area.

Adding several more layers, will allow me to build this up and level it out, so it, hopefully, looks like a reasonably nice contour when the Tpo is pulled front and glued down.

I do intend to cover most of this area with the Tpo, as it reduces heat transfer by a very large amount.

Here's how you know you screwed up and didn't wait long enough for the fiberglass resin to dry, before trying to sand it. Oops...
