PostSubject: Beetlebums Panel   Mon Nov 06, 2006 1:14 pm

Cos he's not on here very often, thought i'd put up some pics of the rusty bits im sorting on Vwbeetlebums panel van!

You all keep askin when your gonna see my bug.....well this is the reason im not gettin to it yet!!affraid



This is what greeted me when i peeled the 3 outer sills off!! used to be the centre/inner sill



above is 95% sorted now (new inner, centre & outer fitted, just tidying up)

This was the rear quarter in front of the wheelarch (d/s) after trimming out rust & filler



these are just 2 out of 30-odd corroded sections in this van (plus some Mot related spannerwork carried out)

Add 3 kids which are homeschooled & a wife workin all hours to pay the bills= long project!!

I was hoping to get the front panel all welded and the window back in but had a few peeps round that stop you from working and some peeps interested in the BMW on seems def up for it fingers crossed... bounce
