    More investigation work reveals everything I touch just gets worse, but I will keep cutting all rust out, and if I still have enough van left I will begin to weld him back together again
    Just be glad once all the metal work is done and the conversion work can begin.

    Hello mate. Have a look at our Blind Faith A Winter Project thread was going to suggest Central Panels in Oxfordshire via Fleabay. Priced well and more importantly a good fit. If you do the sliding door step get one cut from a scrap van if possible. As with the rest take your time .but get all the rust out. Your van is well doable and we'll follow with great interest. Are you joining our 2 van club? It already looks lowered so that's one job off the list

    Your right the cost of bodywork can be massive, and it's never something you can see where the money went. I would rather have spent the same amount on wheels or interior stuff etc.

    Hi mate, yeah central panels seem to be the best choice all round. I have bought the front arches and sills from them and they seem a good fit for pattern panels. I'm trying to save the sliding step too.

    I replaced ours because I had access to a rust free scrapper. I could have made a repair panel as it was just the front lip really. I have kept the one I cut out as I was toying with having a go at making a couple if I can get the time as I have a metal folder. And the cross section though the old one shows how to fold it. Your doing a great job.

    Was there any expanding foam type stuff in your sill about half way down the door?
