Rusty bum

Post by Merrsh1 »


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
