First blog

This is to show some of my car and motor home projects . I got my self a 1985 winnebago lesharo ,now this thing is rotten around the cab so I have cut the cab of a 1996 high roof renault van and welded it onto the winnebago chassis .
I started by doing a lot of measuring and planing on where to cut . I ended up using a lot of the original seams and drilling out the spot welds . The cuts were done using a jig saw and a 9 inch grinder . I took a few days of work and had the cabs swapped with in three days . I got my dad to lift the old cab out with a forklift then slide the new cab in. This should be a great job ,the later cab is the same but with updated dash and is now right hand drive. This looks like a lot of work but to weld up the old cab would have been a lot more work.
