Finished nearside B post today, I'll be able to use jacking point now, Put front wheel arch on and started welding rear trailing arm mountings, I will be glad when the weather warms up a bit,
Steve,

Almost finished welding the nearside today, I have cut out all the rot and welded new metal in, Sandblasted remaining surface rust and treated areas with jenolite to neutralize any rust i may have missed,

It'll not be in primer long Shaun, I know it is porous, so i will put some top coat on if things take longer than i would like, The other side isn't as bad, No big holes and i have already repaired the other sliding door, Hopefully the weather is improving as well,
Steve.

Not done any work on the camper for two months, Been really busy with work, Had a few hours today, So fitted a new front panel, been collecting bits thou, So once it's painted it should go back together quite quickly,
Steve.

Removed the rest of the glass today, realy happy with the condition of the window frames, just three holes to weld up on the windscreen aperture, the tailgate is off a later van, So that is in good nick, The cab door frames are surprisingly rust free,

Passed a big milestone, Finished the welding , I have put some topcoat on to protect the body while i strip and prep the rest of the bus, It feels like it has taken forever to get to this stage, I am sure it will be worth it when its done. whenever that is, Heres a pic in the dark,
Steve.
