First post on here! thought I'd share the rebuild of my Mini Van, I'll warn you in advance it's going to be a slow project...i'm just terrible at getting things done!
The Van was originally my granddads and was getting into a bit of a sorry state after being used by him as a daily driver for some 40 odd years and always being kept outside, Somerset county council originally bought it new and He drove it for the school meals service, a few years later when they were selling it he bought it from them so effectively he knew the car from new, in 2015 I decided I was going to have it restored for him but sadly he passed away during the bodywork side of things, as much as I wanted to do as much as I could my self bodywork isn't my thing so I left it to a local mini enthusiast after it initially got butchered by a garage claiming they would do a good job...amazingly when metal work was initially cut away it had 7 layers of over sills on it! all nicely rusting away!
Anyway enough talking here's some photos of when it came back from the crap garage, only the floor had been touched at this point:
The work that the trusted guy did...couldn't have asked for better!
The pile of scrap he cut out...
And a bit of a change to what it is now:
Bit of photo spam but speaks louder than words!
Feel free to comment, hope you all enjoy!
