Down the unit today to fabricate the inner "B" & "C" posts, I had ordered the "B" post from Schofields but realised the crew cab is quite different to a bus, so it took all day just to do the two but really pleased with the results

Down the unit again today, cut out a bit of rot in the step & patched one bit

First made a template to check all panels were accurately formed,
then with extra pair of hands (thanks BigBulli) spot welded these three panels together & did a bit of cutting. Had to stop then but nearly ready to have a go at joggling & weld them in, the other panels need a bit more shrinking & stretching :wink:

Hi Bob,

Nice work; he's starting to look quite 'whole' again in places now :D Any more thoughts on the colour?

Cheers, Carl.
Have nothing on your VW that you do not know will make it go faster, or believe to be beautiful.
