Sorry Worzel but 'roof replacement' and 'simple' really are a contradiction in terms.  ;)

Yup, thatīs why I started this thread.
Iīm pretty sure I can find the arse-about-tit way of doing it.

I am coming to the conclusion that I have to do it proprely, but not perfectly....
for example.
I got the bedford home and found all the rust, (see arse-about-face, should have found the rust a lot earlier)
Benny gave me an old roof for patches, but the patches needed patches.
So ben sold me an almost perfect roof, with a sun roof(perspex sheet)
so I cut a patch out of the old spare roof to patch the new spare roof,
then out comes the welder and the buckles start popping up and down,
then out comes the grinder and cut it out and try more spots and gussets and get it ok (excellent compared to the first, and just ok really).
Grind and sand and bog (and then rain)
Just going for smooth.......

But from here I saw gonna.........
Tack in a few more roof supports to make lining the ceiling easier,
Cut old roof off verry close to the gutters,
Remove lip of roof that is in the gutters by winding around a pailr of pliers, and grinding spots to weaken them,
Wire bursh gutters to see if they are ok,
cut up old roof and put in tip pile,
open up repair above windscreen to examine,
who knows what next, hopefully just wire brush and paint,
cut out rotten gutters and repaiar with new steel section,

remove new roof from old gutters with spot weld drill,
put roof aside and use any gutter sections that I need,
put new roof on,
weld spots,
fully weld to seal?
Fishoil,penetrol,paint, whatever, just loads of it probably with a brush,

then have a look at those other bits, floor, walls etc..
any suggestions or tips would be appreciated

There are some guys on Facebook who have made a few comments.....

there was hot rod builder..on the old bedford site that showed pics of his roof removal...he welded cross braces across the van to the floor..much like a builder does when bracing a form.. as he said when roof removed van loses its structural integrity...the cfs vans i  did...were campervan models and replacement rootf was only a partial fill as most of roofn gutters remained
