    Productive 1st day of my break all areas treated and repaired prior to fitting the new panels. Shocked at the amount of crap behind the wing. I'll be doing a similar bodge to others and fit some form of hose from the window screen drain hole. Need to prep all new panels ready for spraying. Will attempt other side over next few days. More repairs first on front chassis outrigger to bumper mount. Click image for larger version.

    Good work bud. I had a sycamore tree growing in my inner arch garden, looks like your weren't too far away from that.

    Why is that plod splodged in there - it shouldn't be.

    That panel gap on the arch repair is awful - it'll always draw your eye. Or was it just a really poor replica panel?

    Get some bilt hamber electrox or some epoxy primer on the repaired areas bud, you don't want the rot getting back in.



    oh and don't take this as negative - it's just my way of constructive criticism. Sure, you can come on forums and people can blow smoke up your arse and tell you how great you are doing (if you want that, try the other T4 forum)

    What do you mean by plod? Also if you mean the panel gap between the front wing it's not fixed in place as still working on both sides just rested to keep rain off inner wing. For the record constructive critism welcome. All im doing is saving my van I'm no professional and it will never ever be a show piece as it was way to far gone. It would require a rebuild from chassis up. The vehicle owes me 2k so I'm not going to scrap it 😁 We all start somewhere. Id like to of started with a new van and driven it around instead ha ha

    Totally agree, we do have to start somewhere and buying a minter would be nice but we dont all have that option - it's great to see someone getting stuck in.

    Plod is the filler - it'll crack and rust will creep back in. You should use seam sealer, as little as possible and then a good primer (hence the bilt hamber/epoxy advice)

    It could be a show piece, look at some of the splittys that have been rescued from far worse.

    I did mean the panel gap on the wing, but if it's not finished yet - fair enough.


    It's fantastic to see someone actually doing the work themselves rather than writing cheques, I'm no pro either and always learning - just wish that with some of the stuff I've done previously, people had pulled me up and and offered advice rather than a blase 'that looks ace' type comment!


    now crack on - I love the progress

    It's a good thing you're doing Sbrme, I have trouble fitting carpet in mine so keep up the good work. The more T4's saved from the scrappy, the better
