Time For Some Serious Woodwork

Postby Panky » Mon Apr 02, 2018 3:30 pm

I started a couple of repairs to Ted's woodwork and it sort of escalated a bit :roll:
I began with a waist rail and front frame repair which went quite well

Image

Image

Then I started poking at the other end, it looked fine but I ended up here

Image

Image

I actually made a repair section for the top of the pillar

Image

Before I decided sod it

Image

So tomorrow I'll be on the phone to Woodies to order two rear pillars, two waist rails and the ladder rail at the back. I did make this up a couple of years ago out of B&Q timber and it still looks good but as the back end will all be in bits I though I might as well do a proper job.
Another problem found - bloody filler :evil: Down behind the wheel arch and the bottom of the wooden pillar was full of plod and once knocked out it's a bit of a mess. Can someone show me how that area goes together please, where the inner wheel arch meets the wooden arch and rear part of the floor where the ladder section sits.
Thanks

Oh no you didn't 'start' a little job! Your repairs look very neat, hope someone does come up with pictures to help with your repairs.

(By the way thought I spied a little bit of a Commer van in the background of the 'Car S.O.S. garage in a programme about a GT6 in Norfolk last week. Think you can see it - https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6h2crf around 25 seconds in.)

Thanks Plin :) Unfortunately some of my repair will be getting chopped out with just the piece in the front pillar staying to make way for the new waist rail.
Not a Commer in the vid but it looks like an Austin J2 Paralanian camper - lovely thing :D

I've ordered the new timber and it should be here next week. Woodies suggested using a polyurethane adhesive for repairs but there are many out there - can anyone recommend a suitable one they have had experience with please.

Don't I know it :(
I'll be using Tigerseal between the frame and side panels but what to use on the wood joints, I'm leaning towards Cascamite as it's used for exterior structural timber work, good gap filling qualities and you only mix what you need so no half tubes of adhesive going off on the shelf.

I don't think I'll be needing the glue for a while unless it'd to stick the repair panels on that are needed after the last owner covered everything in filler :evil:

I prodded :(

An order gone in to ESM for floor repair and wheel arch panels along with the corner brackets. Box section under wheel arch around spring hanger and drop link mount is also rotten - haven't got to the other side yet
He spent a fortune on Newton Commercial wheel arch and load bed trim to cover the total bodgery he had created

It's not his hands I would amputate - I'd use the ragged edges of the panels to do the job :twisted:

Time to crack open the beer and have a think, the more I look the more bodges I find. My own fault I fell for the shiny (then) paint and excellent (then) wood. After four and a half years of my ownership he's looking very sorry for himself even though I've kept on top of the maintenance, I guess living outside in all weathers hasn't helped :( But bodily only cosmetics and mechanically very good.

Remember all the money you spend on it is invested. Mine was bad when i looked at it. When i got it home it was even worse and needed a complete rebuild and stripping right down. Try and do a job at a time. Make a list. Then you can cross things off as you do them. Once you've crossed them all out the car will be done. You'll soon get it there.

Cheers :)
I'm still in the bloody annoyed phase, I didn't expect all the work but I know I have to do it, it was bought as 'freshly restored' and I'm kicking myself for falling for a cheap blow-over and new carpets. I've been around cars for long enough to know better :oops:

Annoyed has left the building but oh s**t has come storming in.
The rear wing was in the way so off it came
A bit frilly round the edges :shock:
Image

Then I thought sod it and the whole side sort of ended up on the floor

Image

With a few nice surprises lurking within

Image

Image

Image

Old repairs of sheet welded over the old rusty originals aren't very nice but I have a plan, I think :roll:
