Re: Inner sill bung holes

It would suggest your sill has been done before. Those big holes are there from factory and usually have plastic bungs in them.

It’s worth it just for the pain of the complex shape. But big kudos if you manage to make i...

Re: Rustoration

Jinx Is it worth shelling for Tapatalk pro? One off £9.99? Or is the image posting functionality hinted at arriving soon? Anyway, without photos, the outside edge of my battery tray is toast, as are the inside and outside edges of the “X” panel, but the top of the chassis rail looks mostly ok!! Loo...

Re: Sliding window seal fitment

Did you have window there originally? If so go on YouTube for threading in Windows with some soapy water. If you cut the hole out of a panel van, it won’t fit.

Oh, yes it is...
Forgot about that

Re: Project Phoebe - a diary and some advice seeking

There’s some decent pics of how that inner arch goes together in my procrastination thread.

Good effort, keep at it. I would stop cutting though and just fix one area before cutting the next out. When you cut the b and c pillars you will need to brace internally to stop them flexing outwards.

Thanks very much. I too took inspiration from other member’s posts. Hopefully once my house move is finished I’ll have time to finish this thread!

Looking great, you’ve given me the idea to save having to pay for the ‘proper’ board for some modifications I have to do to.

Re: Galvanising

The last time I looked into this, most places just base cost on time in the tank and they throw it in with other stuff anyway.

Looks great btw

Re: Rear quarter for sliding door side.

Have a look on my thread. The rear panel basically folds around the c pillar at the door frame around the seal.

Re: Stereo switching off whn not running, intermittent

Voltage drop causing amp to turn off? Sounds right to me. Unless you've upgraded the stereo supply wiring and/or are using a separate amp then the thin VW wiring will be dropping several volts when the speakers are being driven hard. OK when running because the alternator/voltage regulator are keep...
