Tools, Making Jobs Easier, And More

So before I buy the bus I want to have the tools ready for it. I know I'll need so many things and I just want a idea and the things needed to at least start most of the tear down and build of the bus. So some simple questions. What are some tools which would make a majority of the work that much easier? If I want to remove some windows, what's the best way to attach sheet metal to the area that was holding a window? What's the best way to remove the rivets? Best tool for the job? If I get a bus from Arizona like the plan is, what's the best way to rust proof the bottom and frame? I feel like there's more I wanted to ask but the day's been long and I've been working on the post throughout it.

Any chance Ryobi has this tool? Not finding any in US but there is some in the AU. Very partial to Ryobi and would love to use them exclusively for the build if possible.

You're asking the wrong guy.....this was a one-time use for me, so I got the $10 special from Harbor Freight.

FYI Ryobi, Ridgid and Milwaukee all have the same parent company and share some technology.
