Productive weekend. Van almost stripped, just the rear number, engine & dash switches to come out then it's ready to go to the body shop. Even better I haven't uncovered any hidden horrors :)

Managed to get a few hours on the van today.

The blisters on the front panel revealed some small holes so will need a bottom repair panel, but we expected that.

Had a hunch that the rear corners had some filler in them so attacked them too. Drivers side had around 6mm of filler over the whole corner, once it was off all I could find was a couple of tiny dings so looks like someone got a little carried away. Unfortunately the passenger side wasn't as good. Had the same 6mm of filler but this was covering a whole load of dents, dings and hammer rash. Looks like it's had a hit on that corner at some point :?

Still, if a rear corner and a lower front panel are the only repair panels needed I'll take that :)

Also got the dash stripped, except for the wiper switch. Any hints on how this one comes out?
