I clearly don't understand enough yet to know I should be running away screaming
In all seriousness, I chose the challenge to develop my bodywork skills, and maybe a cheap way to get a nice van, eventually. I'm learning a little, progressing slowly, trying to pick up knowledge from previous threads.
This morning I looked at removing more of the inner sill. Primed the bit that I had removed the black gunk from and then used a rotary wire brush to try and expose the spot weld locations. That didn't work, except maybe for one point so set about the method suggested by 100leelee. No real success yet, but I am encouraged that what I can see so far is better than the example on this page http://www.alexorourkewelding.co.uk/aut ... allery.php.
I am drilling too deep when removing the spot welds as I am going into the second layer of metal, so that mistake is to be corrected.
