"Holes drilled in cab ceiling to combat roof rot"

Postby Begle1 » Sun Mar 31, 2019 1:28 pm

Anybody have pictures of holes drilled in their cab ceiling to combat roof rot/ rust from the inside out above the windshield?

I always hear it discussed as a "thing to do" but have never seen the end product.

If done clean then I imagine it'd be a good project.

The problem with the front header is there are 3 layers that come together and it's very prone to holing moisture. I personally use a long flexible extension sprayer for my Fluid-Film cans and then remove the visors and feed the sprayer in each side and give it a good coating.
