VW T3 16" Metal Work Repairs
A little light metal work surgery on this 16 inch Volkswagen Doka. The front jacking point had corroded and taken the front edge of the sill with it so we removed the outer section on the front outrigger to allow correct repairs inside the B pillar.  We will now fabricate a new sill section along with the supporting frame inside the sill, before making the outrigger section and stitching it all back together, when finished it will be an invisible repair. ..
