Rusty bum

Post by Merrsh1 »

Morning

I’ve put this off since buying the van but it’s crunch time. Half the lower rear is rotten and full of filler, and both rear corners are suspect too.

I’ve got a mig welder, I can weld to college level and the will to do the work. My question is, is this for a body shop or achievable for an amateur?

It’s fairly straightforward , no need for a body shop
