well I got the Van back from the welder, hes patched it to hell and back… hes done a realy good job, but I have just created two more areas to weld up!! I decided this evening was a good time to remove all the oil stained carpets and clean out the rear. I lifeted the carpet out to descover the wood was all oil sodden so it all needs to come out and be replaces. Its an easy sqaure shape so can get that doen in ply without costinga forune. the last owner had also boxed in the wheel archs which seemed weird? until I removed them:
and the other side:
So I can see the rear wheels now…. I also had a play with the screen pillars with a similar result, good thing is, its not hard welds and if i can get the archs sorted and piller sorted in a week or two, I am still on course for Bedford Gathering on the bank holiday.
