Door skins and rust spots Legend

Post by Betsy on Fri Oct 09, 2015 8:15 pm

hello, 
We have a 1996 Legend , Ford Transit base . We would be grateful for some advice . We have a little rust appearing and would like to get it fixed .  Has anyone had skins put on the cab doors and rust work done  ? If you had a good job done would you mind sharing where you had it done ? 
We met someone in a rally at Van Blitz, Cornish park,  that had it done and they were very pleased but I stupidly didn't ask for more advice or take their contact details

Pattern parts are still widely available and are pretty cheap - e.g. £30-40 for the bottom section on each side. I'm not sure if the upper part is available and recall that the bottom of the window at the base where the fixed and winding windows meet is a common rust spot, so some fabrication or a good door from a breaker's may be needed as a donor.

The parts may be relatively cheap but paint and labour will obviously be the biggest cost factor.

But the more important thing will be location - as the van would have to be there several days you're going to want somewhere at least fairly local, so you really need to give an idea of where you are in the country.
