VW T25 / T3 Van restoration Case Study

VW t25 T3 Van Restoration at MAD Workshop In BristolThis 1986 VW T25 T3 Wedge van came into MAD Workshop needing a full restoration.

After a thorough inspection and lengthy discussion with the owners the schedule of work for the restoration was agreed. Despite the relative youth of the van it had extensive corrosion in all the lower areas. We discovered significant corrosion to both front arches, both sills, the rear arches, rear corners and front cab steps.

The only proper approach when dealing with a restoration of this type is to make sure all corrosion is removed. As you can see from the photographs that's exactly what we did ! We sourced the best repair panels available and fabricated any that could not be obtained. Each section of the body and frame was prepped and proofed to ensure corrosion does not return.

A complete pair of rear side panels, front arches and cab steps, both sills, A B and C pillars, rear quarters, rear arch inners and outers were all replaced along with sections of interior floor !
