You could be right there Danny :lmao :smt007

Right, here we go..... Put in a few hours this week and made a bit of progress, but boy do I need some :smt020

Home made rear window frame now taking shape with only a few more bits to weld up where the rubber mounts onto lower edge.
Image

Both side windows are now fully repaired and the roof has also been fully welded with just some filler/body prep remaining to be done there. I also replaced a section of gutter/roof which was in a bad way
Image

The framework above drivers door is not looking to good though so I'll have to make some repair sections for this as well :smt013
Image

Finished of the welding inside the Bus for side windows and main support sections
Image

Starting to look a bit better now
Image

Drivers front arch and lower section of door is rather rotten
Image

Image

Oh no :smt013 Not the dreaded Silicone repair again.... Why these idiots do this type of thing to floors and chassis I'll never know
Image

There's only one solution when you see Siliconed repairs.... Cut the bugger out
Image

Not doing to bad with the progress but I've just discovered some bad bits on the front chassis sections that will slow things down a little bit.
Still hope to have the drivers side completed next week with a bit of luck and then we can turn the Bus round to start work on the passenger side..... Oh joy :smt005

More to follow . . . .

Cheers Danny :smt003

Not much done over the weekend as I was at the VW Festival Show in Leeds. Good show but cold, wet and muddy :lmao Also had 80mph out my Bus on the way home :smt007

Right, back to the welding and grinding :smt005

All the rot was cut out the floor and old wheelarch, also needed to make a new section of lower door post as this had rotted out.
Image

All fully seam welded
Image

Image

Gave it a light coat of etch primer for now
Image

Almost completed the bodywork repairs on this side now so moving onto chassis soon
Image

Just the upper door frame section to make now, should be fun . . . .
Image

Had a poke about on the front chassis and there's a few places that require cutting out and welding but it's not to bad.
Hope to get this area done before RTTH show this weekend :smt019

More to follow . . . .

Darren, is that your "but it's not to bad.", or a sane persons not to bad. Looking at your previous work, nothing seems to phaze you. I am quite sure that I would be welding it where it touched and using lots of filler. Keep up the good work, after looking at your camper at BSB3, and the photos on this site, your skills amaze me.

Keith.... When I say "Not to bad" I mean in comparison to the window frames :lmao I'll get some chassis pictures posted once I start on it, some is not to bad at all but other bits are a little more of a challenge. Cheers m8 :smt003

Danny.... I think a lot of the rot was caused by poor roof to gutter repairs in the past which leaked gallons of water inside :smt018

Money Penny.... You can't beat a bit of past experience m8, I think I'm starting to get the hang of this welding lark now :smt019 I'll be ready for a few :smt020 this weekend at RTTH though. I've just got a wee tweak to do on my Bus first :smt017 Cosworth engine anyone ? Only kidding m8 :lmao

Got a bit more done but need to get things ready for RTTH show this weekend now :smt020

Started to rebuild the lower section of drivers door and straighten it all out again by making new internals to replace the ones that had rotted out, also made a new channels for the door seal. Door gap is not to bad considering how bad it all was :smt007
Image

Rebuilt the top of the door frame which was a right pain to make, just needs a bit of filler to clean it up where weld and gringer marks are.
Image


Image

The drivers door now fits very well and closes much better
Image

More to follow after RTTH show :smt020 . . . . .

Not be doing much more to this Bus for a few weeks as I've got another project to start for a local Durham Dubbers club member. VW Type 3 Fastback for body resto and paint job, hope to complete this in the next few weeks and I'll start a new thread to cover the work soon :smt012
