Thank you mate. It’s definitely workable lol. Might have to repaint the passenger upper rear panel as for the mother of all runs dude to standing on the airline and stopping the gun dead it’s got to be out of the workshop tomorrow and the Astra van is slowly dying so want it roadworthy by the end of the weekend

Yeah definitely a bummer but easily sorted.
Managed to get a few more bits done last night. Hid kit wired in, screen in, some cab interior trim in and one of the rear doors painted. Ordered a load more bits for it too Image just boring stuff like bonnet catches etc

Imo, for not being a car painter or have the right facilities like a spay boot you do a cracking job 8) 8)

T5FAW silly question mate but what type of welder do you use to weld the seat mounts to the floor with. Thanks

Your vans taken shape pretty quick as well love the colour and the work you’ve done

Sorry for the slow progress guys had some bad news in the family this week so knocked us for 6. Slowly getting through little jobs as and when time allows but being back and forth to hospital etc and needing to be elsewhere rather than at work has slowed it down. Still hoping to get it back together in time for Xmas. One side pretty much all flatted and polished and doors built back up internally. New mk4 rear bumper coming today so hopefully get bumper mirrors and side strips painted and spreader plates for seatbelts should be here too. Going away for a few days over Xmas and hoping to go in it so will get my finger pulled out and get some updates.
Thanks
Jared
