We decided to remove damaged roof and replace with a used one. And right color!!

2.Lift off old roof carefully, HEAVY!
3. All gone, no more old roof
4. Just Hyd. pump, wire harnesses and cylinders left.

Want to thank Dicktator, Ed Borland, Alex, Barry Pattison, Jim and anybody else I might have forgotten who have helped do work on my truck or answered any questions I might have had. I will be leaving Florida next Thursday to move to Tennessee 34 years in Florida I think I have had enough fun in the sun, time for a change. Hope to hook up with SSR owners in Tn.,N.Carolina, Ga. area. Thanks again Guys see you at Daytona.

Dicktator and Team Florida (+ Canucks) ... this is one of the most complex "tech day" endeavors I have seen performed. Absolutely spectacular teamwork and camaraderie exemplified here. Great job all around! Wish I could have been there to learn and assist. Thanks for the pictures!

We do this to keep us out of bars and such!

Florida Chapter is about 200 strong and we subscribe to the following:

NO MEETINGS!
NO DUES!!
NO RULES!

We share our knowledge, experience, and respect.

Then we go to dinner, tell lies and go home!

Here we are at Quaker Steak and Lube after remove/install of roof.

Dicktator

1. Ed and Marianne brought the Cake! Thank you, it was great.
2. Why?? The cake says it all "JUST BECAUSE".
