decisions, decisions, decisions!

Repair or replace?

There comes a point when you need to weigh up whether it is more cost-effective to make what on the surface appears to be a more radical decision and replace larger sections of metal with replacement OG sections.

For example, with the drivers’ side cab door. It is, generally speaking, a pretty good door, but it is just starting to go at the bottom in a couple of places, so is it worth repairing the affected areas, or just simply replace it with a straight rust free imported door?

For me, the decision was quite easy, although a simple repair for someone competent with a welder, that is not my particular forte, and it would cost more in repair time than it would be to buy a suitable rust-free replacement door from the replacement parts that Southern Kombi Parts held in stock.

Time or money

So if there is a someone competent with a welder, looking for a decent cab door for their project, there is now one now listed in my 4 sale section. I will also be listing the tailgate there as well, as similar circumstances apply.

This decision will also help speed up the overall process and make the late spring/early summer completion date easier to achieve… hopefully!
