    Default inverted roof resting fold ?

    Can anyone point me to a good step x step instruction (diagram or clear video) of folding the rear of a roof resting car? Thanks

    Are you talking about flapping the roof down from the rear on an overturned car??

    Many times we have found it easier and more beneficial to complete a "roof slide" than a "clamshell" (or whatever it is called in your neck of the woods). It gets the roof completely out of the way on most vehicles, however with some vans while using our struts to stabilize the vehicle, it makes it difficult to slide the roof out. I will check when I get home to see if I have any videos that could be of use.

    I'm taking it that you are talking about cutting the floor from the side of the car inward towards the center and then flipping the whole floor and seat upward out of the way. Howell Rescue Systems teaches that in their crash course, maybe Howell rescue has it on Youtube.

    Yep thats what I am talking about, I cant find any detailed videos -I saw it done after the fact , but I didnt really study it. I have some questions about drive shafts etc. Guess Im gonna have to try it by trial and error.
