There is also a need for skoolie-specific tools, for the gutting phase:

-Remarketed or adapted hole saw with a deep socket around it, to core out bolts by cutting the flange from bolt heads.
-Rivet cutter, with specially designed jaws to get between the sheet metal and the rivet.
-Alternately, a specially designed drill / dremel bit to core out rivets.

The CBSA will facilitate entry for Canadians driving U.S. plated vehicles by permitting the temporary import of U.S vehicles without paying duties and taxes, subject to the following terms and conditions: ... the vehicle may remain in Canada for a period not exceeding 60 days from the date of importation;

I mean you've been on here longer than most posters nowadays. The poking and insulting gets old, and drives away many who feel they themselves might come under attack for asking the "wrong" question, or making a statement not fully backed up in fact.

I think that:s better addressed and asked of yourself. You have not imparted anything constructive and I have not directly initiated any personal attacks. As you have done in your passive aggressive
Correction.

Stop. You're not helping anyone at this point, just venting on the rest of us. Have your disagreements with others here, but be civil. Their vitriol is no excuse for your own.

I wonder if you could use a plasma cutter with a template that sets over the rivet and blow the rivet out. Plasma goes very very fast.
