Some pics of rear arch repair . This type of repair keeps a truer shape to the arch than the transit pre fab panels available .

Nice repair.

I've recently been doing some welding on my van (sills, arches etc.) but mainly making it up as I went along because there are no replacement panels available.

I did resort to a fiberglass repair for the rear off-side inner arch as there was a 150mm2 hole in the inner arch and I didn't have a way to fabricate the curving shape.

Your repair obviously requires the inner arches to be in good shape so that you can weld the patches onto it. Any thoughts on what you would do if the inner arch was shot?

Nice work. I'm really not looking forward to tackling the rust on mine.
