Thank you for the comments - Yes learning welding is something I see in my near future...
Ok - So my new idea is this..
I wanted to add a deck to my Skoolie anyway, so my question is, it is possible to use this as my new roof?
As this would be properly and structurally welded to the steel frame.
All I would be doing different is to simply remove the original roof.
Equals more headroom and less weight.
Do you think this is an option?
Of course I would have to box it in and waterproof it. But I would then have a taller stronger lighter bus. With the ceiling height I want and it would also be flat and not rounded.
I welcome any feedback or comments
