Right - first things on the shopping list.

I need

Complete Mk2 Front Panel - the one the grill fits into ;)
and a grill ...

Some of the other rotten bits I'm hoping Tim can supply when he does the welding (front cross member, spring hangers, nearside wing.).

Can anybody help?

Also - what seats will fit Mk2 without too much hassle?
Current seats are a bit worn and need to look at whether to recover existing or replace with maybe Mk5 if they will fit.
I think the Mk2 seats are quite a bit wider? Maybe designed for 'big arse' van drivers? :lol:

I know a man who has a NOS front panel. And probably more bits. Should you require it. :wink:

The one I have is for the early Mk2. Not sure if it will be any good to you as Baz has had the face lift I think.
I leave that one to the technical boffins.

Hi Colin, from the pictures the grill does look the same and will address some of the rot in the pictures you sent me.

How about we remove the front panel from Baz when you bring him down for repair, you can then pop into Monty's for tea and cake on the way home and compare the two?

Definitely an easy detour for me going from Kent to Norfolk then. Sounds like a decent plan.
