    yes--i bought the bubble as a gutted project but that's the one thing that was done by the last owner--and he did a very good job. since i have repaired some sections due to my rebuild i did exactly what he did on a few sections. it's basically 1/8" quatersawn oak plywood/veneer cut to the same panel shapes as the alluminum interior skin, then you use olympic rivots and a blind rivitor, attatch the panels, and then attatch a 1/8" thick x 1 " solid oak strip of oak to cover all of the joints (near the joints underneath you use the smaller concealed rivots so there is no bumps). all this equals a pretty cool woodie look with lots of polished rivots. hence-- you need a rivot shaver too to finish off all of the the rivots. it's a pretty unique look much like the trailers from the 40's. cheers-ted
