I hope to get some advice - I am new on the forum, hope I am doing this right. I am replacing the wood framing and plywood on the sides of the upper section of a 1976 CO. They used 1" crown staples to attach much of the framing to itself. I don't have a staple gun and am wondering what a good alternative might be. Are screws too brittle? Should I just use nails? The nails would have to go through the 11/2" wood.
Also, the skin was attached with those tiny 1"inch finish nails, but there were a few with heads. Should I just try and use stainless finish nails as replacement? THe holes in the skin might not let that work.
Thanks for any advice.
