shell off?

The Field Lab - Thu, 2014/08/28 - 7:10pm
Been spending quite a bit of time on www.airforums.com.  (today's photos from the airforums website)  One of the things I did not know before I jumped into this project is that in order to correctly repair the frame and replace the floor, the shell needs to be removed.  That being said...I am contemplating building a gantry which seems to be the preferred method of doing a shell off.  Once the shell is removed and placed on a secure surface, the gantry can be used to lift the frame to gain access to both sides for repairs and painting.  Still not totally committed to this project but I'm thinking even with the extent of repairs needed - this will be much faster to refurbish than the greenhouse was to build.  86,99,74,0,B
