Well its a van that could be driven as is for years to come but :lol:
we start with the usual innocuous front arch
Image
and quickly move to the sill seam in all its glory
Image
its all filler which was obvious
Image
but
Image
there is deffo something not right here
Image
its had a bit of a chequered history as a dodgem car
Image
Image
its had a thump on this corner
Image
theyve done a reasonable job of making good
Image
Image
and its had the usual "pooh" step repair ,no doubt as a result of the bump as well as rot,so that's all to chop out and do correctly.
oh and this is a bit tight,so will see about sorting it
Image
there's loads more but not till i start proper :D
