Jeremy, I like your idea of doing a roof raise from the top.  That works great if you are keeping the original windows.

Unfortunately, in my case I probably am forced to reskin unless I can find a trim piece for the the junction between the two pieces of metal I would have.  I already skinned over all of the original windows and cut new window holes.  I'm not even sure I could maintain the integrity of the roof if I tried to do the job from the top.  Still something to think about.  Removing the skin and doing it again is a huge amount of work.
