Here's a video after 2 weeks of body work
All the rust has now been removed and all the new metal has been treated with Loctite Extend Rust Treatment.
This chemical neutralises all rust and seals the metal to prevent rust. No Body man or car paint supply store had even heard of this here. Should help keep rust from coming back. Had to order from Johore Baru and came in one day by courier. Body work done, goes to paint shop on Monday!
As the paint shop is not able to start on the van for one week, I will have a welder put in the steel angle iron frame for the back storage/bench seats that with a board/table in the middle they will convert to a bed. These will be covered with plywood or MDF board and carpeted afterwards. Here's the plan.
Below is the finished job, done in about 2 hours! Welded in and solid.
Now the van is at the paint shop. Paint work will start 1st April and will take about 3 weeks.
Preped for primer
Primed and ready for Paint!
