Here's a couple of pics from when it went outside to be turned around
Remember this ?GoodBad
I know It's been a while but after some dreaded House DIY Nightmares and a few other setbacks, I'm now back to working on the Camper. The Hyde Side...lol
Decided to have a bit poke about today on the drivers side to see just how bad it really is
Ever wished you'd never bothered ?
I had thought the drives side was not to bad which is why I did the Pasenger side first, but I soon realised I was way of the mark on this one....
The pictures will do the talking here. . . . Let's just say it's FU"*$^ "shagged"
I pulled the remains of the inner and outer sill off with my hands
Not a good start but it gets even better... Or is that WORSE
I removed about 20 bean cans that had been pop riveted or stuck down on top of each other with silicone on inner arch, floor and chassis. All I've used so far is an old screwdriver to remove all the bodged up repairs. It'll look much better once I attack it with the angle grinder and my new Air Saw
The door needs even more work than the Pasenger side one did.
There's also some chassis sections to replace
But the BEST bit of all has to be the front beam, this was coated in very thick underseal so I wanted to see what was under it all to make sure things were ok here.
Look what I found
The white stuff you can see is bathroom silicone that has been used to fill all the rusted holes and stick small plates on to make it look ok. There's hardly anything holding this beam together.....
Death trap springs to mind. The beam will have to come out for some serrious surgery in the workshop.... We have the technology... We can rebuild him.... I hope . . .
More grot and fester to come . . . .
