Experience with planting VW bus on top of Skoolie???

I have gotten my hands on a 1979 VW Westfalia Camper to superimpose upon my 1979 Blue Bird. They were meant to be I am just trying to get some advice from people who have some experience (or clever ideas) with this sort of project.

I have seen one in person and many pictures of this. Some people I've talked to have done a poor job installing the bus and so I want to get it right the first time. My ideas thus far: Cut the VW horizontally at the wheel wells, and once I get it on the roof, take 12" angled sheet metal and place the VW on the joint so the vertical sheet is bolted to the inside and the sheet laying on the top of the bus is then welded and sealed.

These are speculative plans so any ideas would be great!
