    hey everyone, has anyone removed a body shell for restoration? how much of a job is it and is it worth the effort? got a 69 and 73 to restore and am thinking it easier to remove the shells to weld chassis and body shells. any advice be appreciated.
    cheers comrades

    Hi comrade, I don't know whats it like removing body shell off a bus but would imagine you would need plenty of space . Have you thought of a car roller, seen one used on a camper once and looked perfect, just bolted to wheel hubs on one side, fuel removed along with battery etc then over it goes excellent for welding but will depend on how much welding is needed to be done. Still can't beet hot weld rooling down sleave into your arm pit when lying under camper. lol
