Here you can see that I cut an angle on the piece that was going to be used on the bottom, so that I could get the TPO all the way in.

The business end of the "helper". It's about 4 inches wide. That TPO is tough when trying to fold it into place, so I figured that a wider piece would just make it harder to get the TPO in place.

After several hours worth of work, getting everything ready, and we have some results.

I just left the excess TPO hang there, like I did on the other side, as it's not going anywhere.

I was about wiped out after that today, and will likely be a little sore tomorrow. Call me a wuss.... Lol...

Thanks for the info. I do, actually get their emails. They've got some good prices on their goods, at times.

Most of the items I have bought I have been happy with. I wouldn't call it top of the line equipment, but it usually suffices for my needs.

Hopefully, things will slow up for me this week, and I can get some work done finally on the coach.

Is there a target date to have this project finished? Or at least a projected year? Decade maybe?


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Glad to see the roof in place; that's a huge step in the right direction for sure!

One thing I was thinking as I was looking through your posts on rolling the TPO under the drip edge was the thought of installing the metal after the TPO; using it to pinch the roofing between the plywood and the metal. I realize it's a little late at this stage, but a thought nonetheless.

Yup, and maybe a touch more than that! [emoticon]
