New side panel too short?

Post by xgav8 »

Hi all,

Got a call from the guy who's welding our van telling me the panel we ordered from Just Kampers was too short (https://www.justkampers.com/251-809-159 ... -1992.html). 

See pic: Image

That didn't sound right, so had a look online and is it correct I'd need to buy this as well? https://www.justkampers.com/outer-sill- ... -1992.html

The lower ~5cm is a separate sill panel which is connected to the floor.

Probably your van had a cheap panel fitted before wich deleted the sill line

Looks like you will need the inner sill too
