Vans so clean underneath, stunning nick throughout so when I noticed a hole rust under the front lower slam member it was time to take the bumper off & get it welded.

The painted metal this is bolted to at the sides remain in perfect condition despite the horrible pitted rust all over this member. Glad we caught it while its saveable!

Wow!.


That does look to be rather well rusted.


As you said, you were lucky to discover the rust before it go much deeper.


Good Luck with stopping and treating the rust.



Must take the front bumper off my fathers 1998 T4 to have a look.

I had the front bumper off mine earlier this year and it looked OK.

Luckily the only rust that I have found on my T4 was some Arch Rash.

Got a local guy (Jon Bowers Swift bodyworks) to weld a patch into the hole & he ground it all back to metal & treated it this morning.
