Is your storage van an old OTR trailer or something like a Chevy van?

Moving slowly but still moving.

Shade's topic on metal roofing came just at the right time. This shed is getting a metal roof that is leftover from previous projects. How to handle the peak, tho.

Continuing...

Pic 6, 7 and 8: Gave up on the controlled buckle, reversed and centered the top punch and pushed it home

Pic 9: Top punch

Pic 10: 1 complete

I have two more peak or ridge and five straight panels to cut, then prep and paint everything before the sheeting gets installed.

It can wait until it's a bit cooler out.

On edit, the top punch is a 3/4" round bar held on by two screws

Nothing available locally. I missed my opportunity a couple of weeks ago when we were in El Paso. I could have swung by Mueller Building, Inc and picked what what I needed but I hadn't thought that far in advance.
