Newbie in Edgewood

When I say newbie, I mean it all around :lol: . New to this site, new to VW and new to owning a bus. What I have is a 75 Westy tintop. She's a bit rough, needs a new nose piece, new rear corner panels, new front doors (because of the damages from the noes), roof popped back straight, new engine hatch, lots of dents and dings, interior needs complete refreshing, engine needs possible rebuild (currently working on getting it out. kinda hard without a garage and a flat level surface :lol: ), gearbox review, new steering and suspension parts (been sitting for who knows how long, maybe 20+ years :?: ) and a paint job. So far I have taken out some of the interior but ran out of space in my trailer so I need to get a dedicated shed, took out the dash to check wiring and to prep for nose replacement and started overhauling the rims. I have mechanical knowledge, after doing what I have done, it's super simple but I'm sure there are a few VW specifics that I do not know so if any of y'all have any tips and tricks, lay em on me ^_^
