Two questions! on my first van conversion
« on: March 20, 2017, 08:22:27 AM »
Hi, me and my girlfriend got an LDV convoy (panel van) yesterday. after looking for many months we finally found one that fitted the bill only needs small bit of welding on the back quarter. we are very lucky to have a family member that's a mechanic and able to weld.
my two questions are have you guys got any links or ideas where is best to buy LDV convoys minibus back doors as were looking to have windows there. i figure its probably better and easier to fit new doors as to cut windows in?
secondly what is best to coat the underside as too prevent and protect from rust? ive had differnt answers and was just curious as what to use!
Thanks for you time. 8)

Greetings & Welcome!

I would think that an auto wreckers would be your best bet for doors.  If possible I would recommend ones with opening windows.
