Has anyone had to replace the full side panel?

Post by Goldfeesh »

Afternoon everyone! I need to replace the side panel on my van. Its a panel van. I can get the bottom half but need the top half too which I cant find anywhere. Id just use sheet metal but it isn't flat.

What options do I have? I'd prefer a panel van panel but if I have to Ill put a window in.

Look at 'My T25 Restoration' thread. My van originally had a window above that panel but I had a metalwork place make me a panel out of zintec sheet metal. Its not a complicated shape to make for someone who has a sheet metal folder.

Yeah I meant the middle panel above where the fridge vent would be from the bottom to the roof line.

How much was the panel you had made? I can get the bottom half from the usual places, just not the top half now!

They were sold out and aren't responding to emails. Might have to try ringing instead.

I still have a crap panel in but don't want to start cutting until I know I can get a replacement! Haha.
