Hi Ramon, the roof arrived this am, it fits very well, the last 1/2 inch both sides are lifted a little, but I am sure I can sort that The brass sheet had a couple if little dings in but they seem to have come out with your rolling, super!
You have done a very good job for me & I thank you, I will upload some pics of it in position when it is ready for fitting,

Hi Peter, I didn't say but thought you might be pleased that those marks had smoothed themselves out. I would think there's enough spring in it to pull those edges down - I'm assuming you mean the side edges not the for and aft  :o

Pleased to have been able to help, good luck with the ongoing work - I'll look forwards to seeing those pics  :)

Hi Ramon, yes it is the side edges, I have put a clamp to make it fit and also there are some screws have to hold it place.  by the time I have done the cutting away i think it will look well.

Hi Roger, you are so right! MEM members are so helpful & no doubt I will be asking there advice, and the info from steamer came in handy when I made the slide that fitted on the roof. So a big thanks to all
Peter.
