Front End Replacement - Advice on cost needed (First Post)

Post by LS_T25 »

I have just acquired this 1980 T25 Bus from my father in law, who has bought a shiny resto instead, 

The front end has been like this for about 10 years and now it's mine I want to get it sorted, Im after a ballpark figure of how must a garage would charge to replace the frontend? and if it's worth it, any advice is appreciated! Imagethankfully, my father in law already has another front end that was cut from a different van ready to go ... 
Im based in Nottingham so if there are any welders in the area please get in touch! but I would like to know how much I'm looking at ... 

Thanks 

LS

Probably of the order of £3k to do it right I reckon
I may be wrong of course
I'd be asking Sandy to look at doing it, W Yorks

Thanks Aidan that's really helpful, confirms the figure I had in mind, I might have to just settle for the lower front panel and upper panel and see how I get on,

Cheers!
