Hi Guy's,

I finished the second Prevost H3-45 Race Deck and I'm sorry for not posting progress updates

because there seems to never be enough time in the day. Sad

Anyway, The first deck had stood up to 25 humans on it and 5 events allready. [even though I stated 12 max]

The second deck is much bigger [7'x 29'] with no roof warts in the way.. So, it's ready for Talladega now.

Here's some pics..  Also see my company's Facebook page for step by step progress below in my signature.

Hey, do you have any pictures of your brackets and how they fastened into the roof and how you sealed them?  We are actually in the process of potentially doing this to a friends bus, but are going to use a pontoon deck.  All aluminum frame, w/ marine grade plywood and vinyl covering.  going to cut the aluminum rails off and fab up some higher "non pontoon looking rails".  The aluminium framing weighs a little over 200 lbs for a 24' long and 8' wide platform.  i was going to fab up 8 custom square feet i could bolt to the bottom of the toon deck before setting it on top the bus, then I was going to bolt her through the cross members.  I didn't think i could rely on screws.  Last think i want was for it to catch wind and fly off....or worse, rip part of the bus roof off when it went.

thanks,

Greg

Good for you Nick,

I just returned from Dover Downs for a night and taking a morning walk around the track (outside) I was thinking of your rooftop conversions.

Hope you are well, and had a profitable summer.
