Sam (our new bodyshop apprentice) has done a nice job colour testing the new paint on the CoastVW Syncro Doka - we have decided on Porsche Slate Grey. Paint is so shiny we have out very own 'hall of mirrors' :)
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.
The custom rear panel has now been fitted into this VW T3 16" Syncro. Middle panel has also been trial fitted and is now ready for welding in place.

We have made a bit of progress on the latest VW T3 Syncro restoration that is in:
1. Bottom of b-pillar has been cut back to expose the inner frame which shows light surface corrosion but no rot
2. Front A-pillar on nearside had some accident damage which was rather crudely filled.....new panel will be fitted here
3. Short sill panel has been removed to expose the inner frame which is often corroded away but this one looks good
4. Mid panel has had a lot of filler applied over large dent which will pull out to straighten the panel
