Steve Forman (Woodies) has written a few chapters in Ray Newall's book on Travellers, all about replacing and restoring the woodwork.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Morris-Minor-T ... 830&chn=ps

It's a good book to have anyway, but the woodwork section should set you off on the right track.

Well today me and my friend Pat started stripping the Traveller wood and it just shows what has been hidden over the years as the wood is in very poor condition under the surface.The wood all came apart easy enough and I have ordered new wheel arches,window channels,lots of trimmings and fixings as the edges were holed on the arches as stripping showed. I have started to prepare the new wood and over the next few days will repaint the panels and carry out the welding.
Iam so glad that I took advice off here to replace the wood because the strength was very weak in the frame and the rebuild is something totally new to me so Iam also learning so much about my Traveller. I will attach new pictures as work progress.

Well done with what you've done so far. You've made a good decision in deciding to replace the whole lot. By far the best answer in the long run - although quite a challenge too! Good luck - and remember to trial-fit everything first.

Work carried on this week following the strip out of my Traveller both me and my friend Pat removed the old rotten wheel arches and welded in both inner and outer sets.
Pat also made some decent rear outer mountings from scratch which fitted fabulously and then we stone chip protected the rear bay and undersealed both wheel arches.
Ive repainted the rear door hinges and the new lower rear panel and the biggest paintwork was on the roof panel. Ive also painted a new nsf side panel as the old one was badly corroded. We have fitted together both side wooden panels following the wood protection applied, so now they need 3 coats of the Sikkens varnish which will take me a few days. Im really pleased with progress this week as we have both put alot of hours in. :D

This weeks work was applying several coats of Sikens varnish on the new wood frames and I have finished painting the hinges plus the wings.
The wings have also been re-undersealed and all of the old crushy paint has been removed off the lights and reflectors.
I have ordered new leatherette to cover the replacement inner trim panels that I have made up.

Thanks Panky I've learnt so much already and when you look at the structure of a Traveller they are simplistically build and yet very clever too.I realise that the building togethher will be more critical to make sure everything fits together properly, I cant wait until its finished. :)

Did to trial fit the wood completely and set the steel work to it first. Its best to make the steel fit the wood rather than force the wood to the steel.

Thanks Jonathan I Must admit I'm a little nervous with the refitting as it must be spot on. I'm sure that with all of the new metal work that has been fitted I will be in for a bit of jiggling.Today Pat completed the final bits of welding on the bed which has come out really well,also the repainting has been completed along with the final coats of varnish to the wood.

Progress the last couple of days involved fitting both side wooden frames that after rejigging the newly fitted wheel arches. (Jonathan you are so right in making the metalwork fit the wood ) as when fitting the new arches from the eye they line up fine but when the wooden frame is fitted up its a different story, sorted very well with the fabulous help of my friend Pat. :) We have tonight fitted the framework along with the roof struts and end top rail. The rear door frames seem to be a nice fit so tomorrow we will fit up the door hinges and recheck from there.
The roof panel has been placed on the frame and bolted loosely from the inside cab bolts and everything is fitting nice and squared up so the pinning and gutter fitting will follow.

That is looking superb 8)
You guys have done wonders in such a short time, I'm still a LONG way off getting any where near fitting the woodwork. Still I've spent a couple of weeks clearing and sorting the garage so now at least I have some room to get stuck in again.
