Had the sills off this month and 20 years of tin worm revealed :( Have posted just some of the pictures below.

Just thought the cost of the work would be of interest to members - £750+Vat which included the new sills (£130 each)

I used a small specialist in Southampton - Everyway Soloutions - who photo'd everything - Tim was just great.

Haha that looks familiar - though my sill covers were not as bad as yours - still opted for new ones though - a bit of a no brainer at the price.

Not too far from you - mine was done at Sandydown near Stockbridge - though this was part of a bigger overhaul that also included attending to scabs & corrosion on tailgate plus front & rear arches, repainting the doors to resolve lacquer peel, & repainting the front bumper after a pheasant strike. Only the roof and bonnet escaped the spray booth this time!

How was the pheasant ? Not much left for dinner ? :hungry: Agree - new sills are no brainer, although my guy did offer to repair !

Your breadvan looks great even in that state - nice colour - always fancied one, but could justify one to the management .......

Mine was also part of other bodywork - rear wings and doors had the usual dings and marks - so seemed a shame not to do it all at same time. Just interior now to spruce.

She's put to bed for winter now 😴
