It has been another noisy week of rusty discovery on the Microbus project. In between the bread-and-butter accident repair work for Sandall’s customers, we have made some real progress.
Last week we cut away the rotten cabin floor, which had been subjected to a lot of bodged repairs. The cleanest, most robust and durable solution was to remove the old floor completely and start with a fresh panel.
Not content with fitting a new cab floor, we have also welded in a new passenger-side wheelarch. As you can from the pictures, the new arch has enabled us to re-align the passenger door. The gaps are now much cleaner and more consistent – the sign a good panel work.
