Bap, how about taking some diamond plate material, not too thick, and rolling it on a something round, to give you the curve you need, and put two strip's over the damage and up to where the roof joins, do both sides the same width,? Just a thought? Rail!

HARLY, that metal is very thick, and the one on the entry side has a crease in it ..the old suction cup trick wont work on that,,,the other side looks worse in pic than it really is..

RAIL, i thought about somthing like that..., but after starring at it for awhile i think i can unscrew the whole top panel and make the repair that way,,,or just bondo it as is..
the worst part is it wasnt there when i bought it....lol

Suction cups the same as a toilet plunger? I have seen it work. Keep the Pic coming we like pic's. Have you ever tried a product called "Mold Armor E-Z House wash"? We used it on the old PA and it took it all off. You use it on the end of a garden hose. Worked Great.

bap,
The old slide hammer with a screw attachment on the end will get most of the dent out, if it becomes too difficult to take the piece off. This will save a lot of bondo, you will just need a skim coat to smooth everything out . You can fill the hole with another screw and grind most of the head off so the skin coat of bondo will cover it. Just giving you more food for thought.

Yes I agree, one of the reasons that I hand wash and wax the 5er twice a year. I agree with you on not wanting to tear up the interior, it looked too good to mess with.
Looking at having the decals removed and painted, but with the expense of getting the truck repaired, maybe next year.

thanks bap,
NP on the nosey, we are in Brooksville. Yes the truck seems to be running good, if something happens now, I will fix it myself, so I just don't throw parts at it until I find the problem like the dealer does, lol.

bap,
Glad you got it underroof, Enjoy the shores, it is supposed to be in the 80's for the next week and lows in the mid to upper 60's. perfect weather for me.
Mine wouldn't fit, it is just shy of 13' to the top of the satellite dish. Now get your horse shed built, then you can really enjoy the beach.
Frank

as for the roof im just going to reseal around vents and put a fresh coat of sealer on it, probably put new skylights in it they are old...lol..if i did have to work on the roof it would be very reasy with the hight of it in my garge/shed..

gonna start on a new winter barn for the horses today,,getting everything layed out and finish up monday...then hit the beach and come back and start work on the holiday, and then the rest of the winter rebuid the old tag a long,,,,i cant wait to find the vin on that one,,its by far the oldest one we have,,my guess is mid 50s ,,but everything in its shot except the ice box,2 burner stove and sink,,,,a real total restoration,,,probably glamped out but keeping the turquise sink,ice box and stove,,
thats gonna be the true test for the dw and myself....lol....we gonna have alot of work in yhat one,,,,,lol
