Storm damage Aframe repair

Here are the pictures of my wind damaged roof repair.
As a start i drilled out the rivets .Removing the roof hinges then hammered the aluminum straight because you canít buy just the roof trim with the hinge.Roof panels are too expensive didnít want to buy two new ones.
People will ask how it happened. It was at the new RV dealer lot when a storm came through. Not sure how it was damaged but i can see the roof was not aligned correctly when built. You can see it in the video.The two holes in the roof worked out great very nice seal.
The best sealant was OSI QUAD Advanced Formula Sealant Window Door & Siding CAULKING for the roof and corners
Search for .. FLAGSTAFF classic wind damage.. on YouTube.

Nice repair job and interesting theory on why the roof didn't hold re the roof latches. I'll be triple checking the latches henceforth.

Thanks for sharing the video. Have a great trip to Alaska.
