Overhead power lines!

Tedd, watch for electrical lines, both the 12v type in the right upper part of the roof, and the high voltage stuff running overhead. You don't want to damage any wires while replacing panels, and aluminum is an excellent conductor of electricity .
BTW, I see we have both eaten at the same Waffle House in Chattanooga, does that make us relatives?

Ted,

Are you talking about replacing the inner end cap or the outside? If the inner what kind of condition is it in now? I would think that you might be able to recover it in some fashion using the original as a form.

Malcolm,
Both. The inside fiberglass one is beyond repair, but I have one in good shape in the end cap I am using for a replacment.

Check my photo album under Shell Shock for the project at hand.

Sounds like you'll have an "Overlanbassador" when you're done!

That, or an Ambassalander . Seriously, Tedd, you have your work cut out for you, but in the end you will wind up with something to be proud of, that you can say "I made it myself."
So, will the new creation be "Frankentwinkie"?

If you conceive a child in your A/S, from that point on do you call it your "Heirstream"?
