    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting

I was just wondering if that sounded like a...
  2. Welding T4

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi. I live in Bristol and need some welding done on the roof of my T4. There is a fairly sizeable hole that I have ground down and it needs a patch welding in. Can anybody recommend someone who can weld in the Bristol area for cash, or a garage that does welding for a reasonable price? Thanks.

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    I've been lurking here for years and for the most part have found any answers I needed by searching the forum, but I haven't been able to find anything on this. I've had my T4 for a decade or so, converted it myself to a camper and had the best times in it. Now I have a daughter I wanted to...

    Hi all, I've been searching through various threads and posts, "bodywork & exterior" etc but can't seem to find any recent posts recommending garages that do welding on T4's in or around East London. The plates that hold the plastic front bumper brackets to the bumper are rusted through on...

  10. Structural MoT welding - Bournemouth

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi all I'm hoping that someone can recommend a decent garage that is familiar with T4 repairs in or around Bournemouth. Weird thing is: my Caravelle went through the MoT without an advisory last year, this year I'm being told it's shot! So guys - can anyone shout out for a decent business in...
