Great work. Your thread has been really helpful to follow and prepare for the work that I've got to do to my inner sill and jacking point. Keep it up!

Thanks, kind of you to say so. The aim of documenting it has been to motivate myself, but to show it can be done by a novice (but not necessarily how it should be done!!)

It took some time to figure out where some of those photos were taken from Roger. In a weird way you have provided me some encouragement as it seems the Scottish air has been less aggressive to my van than yours

Keep plodding away :ok

Cut out the damaged area of floor by the engine bay, let in a piece for the edge of the rail.

Piece of floor in. I’d started the second piece but no photo. Sweating buckets in the heat, dripping into my welding mask and fogging up my glasses.

Just so you know, if you need to do more floor you can get ribbed sections of floor from Schofields. I will need to get some for the left portion of the engine bay to the wheelarch and have spoken with them about supplying a piece, when I need it.

Do they offer the corrugated profile for above the engine bay as it's a different profile?

Yes

They need measurements of the profile, and then they can make a section up for you

You will need to speak to them

Great - I tried to make the profile myself on a vice and can't quite match it exactly so this will help.

I didn’t worry about the profile , it’ll always be hidden so I just bent everything to fit. A bit quick and dirty, but hey, gets the job moving along. And luckily the floor that the arch welds to is tip top rust free, much better than some others I’ve seen on here.

Just read this entire thread .
Thanks so much for posting all the details, I'm psyching myself up to do some more bodywork on ours and thought this would be a good way to get back into it before I get mucky.
Hope you are still working on it , you have done a fantastic job so far , much respect .

I am still working, but van is a couple of miles away in another garage since I moved house a year ago. Makes it more difficult, and no power either, so have to be mindful of generator noise for the vans neighbours. Updates soon.

and I’m glad the thread is useful, but I’m no expert, I think the point is to show that a novice with time can do it.
