Not a full on resto but progress with the old dog Laughing

As I got her riding high with a blown head gasket

T4 caravelle 19082009051

She needs some work but the first thing was to get her to my mates workshop and get the headgasket sorted

T4 caravelle 20082009055-1

Not cheap on parts but shes all sorted now and sounds great Smile
Still gotta sort the exhaust out though Embarassed

The drive home from the workshop was a bit of and eyeopener, she's a proper boat in the corners Shocked might be something o do with the 4x4 ride height

Yesterday she got hit with the stick, big thanks to Chopperman for the springs Wink She's now sitting closer to the deck

Plated the whole in the inner sill the made up a repair section for the outer and grafted it in and gave it a blast of zinc primer, need to finish dressing the welds back but ran out of time
