Thanks guys! My electric with a sharp bit did fine with the exterior style rivets, but yes, that high speed drill looks cool!

I think the drill will come into it's own when I'm up drilling on the roof sheets, that sort of thing. But next weekend is looking like +1, no wind and sunny so it could be shell off day; hopefully. If nothing else I'm really looking forward to being able choose the tanks, it seems like I've spent hours deliberating already.

"Measure Twice Cut Once" figures in here as well. All of the time you spend in planning and preparation will pay off when you get to the actual work.

With the extent of the panel replacement you're planning, the price of the high-speed air tool and compressor likely will pay off in time and energy saved. My Dad always told me, "Do it right, do it once."

Although I am thoroughly enjoying my restoration work, I don't really want to ever do it again, at least not on THIS trailer!
