Hi folks i have a couple of what looks like rust spots above the windscreen on the hi top roof.

I'm guessing the metal underneath is rusty and poking through the fiberglass? Could this be caused by condensation on the inside.

Any thoughts on what i should do please. I am having the windscreen taken out in January to have the rusty seam sorted out but i wasn't planning on the roof coming off as well.

Is that the only way this could be sorted?

Many thanks Dave

Hi,
You can see most of the cab roof, if it is not too difficult to remove the over cab flooring. Cheaper and easier than removing the fibre glass top.
Depends on your conversion. My Autosleeper over cab floor can be removed in about 30 mins. If there is serious rust you will be able to see it.
