more than just skin deep

OK VW Early Bay Westafalia renovation fans, back to the plot after all these bank holidays and long hot sunny weekends. You will be pleased to hear that work has continued and some more externally visible updates have happened to the passenger side!

Now that all the internal structure/sill has been repaired under the cargo/sliding door area, it was time to get the new external sill fitted. After fitting the replacement imported rust free sliding door (the eagle eyed of you will notice the replacement red painted door), it was then used as the guide for fitting the external sill. This allowed the sill to get fitted whilst ensuring all factory gaps/shut lines were maintained

Now the inside structure is sorted, the new external sill gets fitted

Good to know that although all the earlier work will not actually get seen or be visible, that fact that it has been done, will mean the camper will be 100% solid, and should be good for many more years to come!
