Hey guys, new to the forums and have been working away on my caddy van on evenings and days off, just grouped all the pics i have togeather and thaught id share them with you all.
picked it up a coupld of moinths back and was a builders van so had emough sand in the back to make my own little privte beach. which stayed nice and moist all the time so rotted out loads of the rear.

This lot shows the van when we first got it and started to uncover all the nasty bits......


Loads of rust spots on the outside.....

Started with rebuilding each of the corners and had to weld loads of plates over each of the arches and floor, ended up making one big plate for the center of the floor which you can see later on in some of the pics...

Silly question from a real novice but if you remove the rear handle what mechanism opens them now?

As I say a "real" novice...
