    Hmmm you might end up
    Hmmm you might end up damaging the paint on in and outside of the roof… difficult question! Maybe it comes of easier when it freezes! But since it’s almost officially summer…
    Does it really needs to be removed? Are time and effort worth it, or could you just build on top of it.

    Hi, please describe the parts
    Hi, please describe the parts you want to be restored and we might narrow it down.

    Welding jobs are difficult to estimate both time and cost-wise. The rustdevil is a treacherous one. Once you start you have to continue removing material until the base to weld on is solid.
    In my case it took me a month to remove, copy (bending), weld and paint all the rotten bodywork on a Peugeot Boxer. Being a beginner. Once had an experienced welder do two skirts, and some small things, in one week for 500€ excl materials. That was an ’69 Vauxhall. I guess it all depends on the square area and complexity.

    Hi, I live in Sweden, and the good thing about Scandinavia is you can camp almost anywhere – as long as you show respect. So not to close to houses, and Leave No Trace. Norway is quite a challenge to any motorhome, there are some fantastic highways but there also a lot of curvy and hilly smaller roads. So be sure your brakes and cooling system is in good condition, and treat your engine in a way it actually cools. As mentioned all the Nores love being outdoors and show great hospitality. Be cautious on bringing plants or domestic animals, booze, as this is not as easy as in the rest of europe. Anyway have a great trip and beware of the moose!
