Leonard - yes I've had my eye on one of those - think you just convinced me.
Aaron - I agree the outside panels are more critical. The front buldge did not seem to effect the interior skin - don't know why though - anyway, what I found when I took the interior skin off was the vertical support had popped a couple of rivets so it was just dangling, also there were a couple of rivets that had "missed" the vertical support when the unit was built. I think all of this, combined with some floor rot is what caused the "crushing". I've already fixed the vertical - which seems to have made a differece and am thinking about putting a piece of about a 4 in wide piece of pretty stout aluminum behind the crease - to hopefully pull it back into shape. - what do you think? When I pulled the interior skin off the front it didn't tweak - so it should go back on ok. Also - when I put the interior skin back on, I plan to screw it in several places to line it up - then with Leonards air popper above - it will be bam bam (sorta) done!
