So its Shell off

After a month of sporadic work a feverish intervals we have lift off. I would say that the most surprising thing I have encountered through this part of the process is how unbelievably strong strong some of the glues used by either AS or who ever PO in the past applied to the front and rear end cap to floor channel to banana wraps was! I literally picked up the front and back ends with hoists trying to get this stuff to give. ultimately I had use a knife and skin spoons to wrest it away. And all of the interior bracing and all that, completely unnecessary if your planning on leaving the shell intact until returning to the frame/floor.
