This is the Transit in the condition it arrived in....

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Centre lower panel on O/S is dented. I can sort that out no problem

Image

Looks like it has come from a salvage company :?: Looks like is says Nearside front & rear :?:

Image

Looks as if it had a slight knock on front N/S wing. Which is not important has it will have a mk7 front end conversion done.

Image

Does require a replacement N/S side loading door :!:

Image

Rear bumper has sustained damage. Replacement bumper will sort that. Main issue is the rear section shown below

Image

That really could do with replacing. IE cut away & new section fitted into place. I will know more tomorrow when I removed old bumper & have a look underneath.
Again that's something I can sort out. 8)

As for paintwork, apart from doors, dented O/S lower centre panel & glue residue left behind when signwriting was removed. It's in very good condition & could be polished up.

With the damage to the rear, this one may take may a little longer than planned. :wink:

Removed O/S inner wing & reinforcement today.

Image

Wheel house section is solid. So no need to replace it.

Remove N/S inner wing & reinforcement. Again wheel house section is solid. No need to replace that :wink:

Image

Also removed old chassis end reinforcement plates

Image

Now ready to fit new mk7 inner wings & reinforcements. Before that can be done, need to get some more panel bond.

Retail price for both of these X-members from Ford

Upper rear panel
Image

Lower rear panel - yes it has pushed up the rear floor :wink:
Image

Upper panel Ford Part no F4438867 retail price £179 exc VAT
Lower panel Ford Part no F4395788 retail price £101 exc VAT

That's expensive :shock:

I have managed to source a good complete second hand rear section from another mk6 for £50 :P
