    If somebody could tackle the caved in roof, you would have a sweet van at a really good price. El Paso is a place that would usually have zero rust

    It can be fixed with a bottle jack and some other tricks. Our subject van here though probably needs some cross frame work too.

    The subject roof needs alot of that plus a roof patch as does mine.

    I don't think m1dadio's roof was as bad as this one and I would exactly what he did if it was in that condition.

    It I were to do it again an nice roof skin would be on my list of must have's before I bought it.

    Roof skin is not that bad of a job just a ton of drilling spot welds. It took me a couple days to swap mine. If anybodys on the east coast needing a roof my parts van has a really straight one on it, just some surface rust

    I am more worried about welding the seam across the top of the roof than the spot weld part. I think I am going to try it when I get a second vehicle so I have some thing to drive if it takes me a while.

    I spot welded the front around the windshield and around the back doors. The rest I used quarter panel glue and glued the long sides. My buddy is a body man and the glue alot together

    I only have the rear section of the roof not the part over the front seats so I was going to seam it right at where the ribs start.

    Hmm that woulda be easier if I had a complete roof, no seam to worry about. I like the glue idea part!

    myke, you can flange it at the seem and it wouls be alot easier to weld together. Trick is to use self tpping screws to get it all "tacked together" then weld away.
