Lift Off on Hold - Short Ribs Found
Was moving quickly this morning, removing interior panels and insulation going for shell "Lift Off". The plan was to do lift from above after removing interior panels, but I found that the ribs on my Safari are not continuous across top of trailer. There were extra panels of vinyl clad sheets riveted to ends of "short ribs", I am guessing that this is for some strength. The extra panels have been removed, and I find that the ceiling is bouncey as I walk across floor.
Was this a bad day at the plant or is this typical installation? Has anyone encountered this before?
I hope to reinforce missing members with new ribbing, now where do I get this material?
The Shell Off is on hold until we can get the strength in framing to support weight of shell from above.
