Step 35: Attach exterior layer of roof.

This was kind of tricky.  I actually glued the front half down first, with some aluminum nails at key points.  Once the glue cured, then I glued down the second half/roof.  You'll need lots of clamps and blocking. 

Again one piece won't stretch the entire distance.  Trim the first sheet so it ends midway on one of the spars.   Then cut another piece to fit from the spar back to the tripled up spar where the hurricaine hinge will go. 

I had some trouble getting the sheet to lay right along the tripled up spar so I ended up using a lot of little nails to keep it in place until the hinge was screwed in place.  See the next step.
