New to the scene - after advice

Offline schmarx


As the title suggests, we are new to the scene. We have taken the plunge and got a 1970 early bay restored. We bought a shell that had been shot blasted, welded and primed. We have gone through the restoration process and have had the van back for about a month, but already i am having pin pricks rust appear between the dormobile roof and the fixed roof where i believe condensation is occurring, plus where the mirrors were fitted the paint has obviously been damaged and is already starting to rust. Surely this shouldn't be occurring within a month? The seals around the doors are working themselves loose also - are they supposed to be glued? Any and all advice is gratefully received.
