Thumbs up Welding needed for Ducato.

Hi everyone
98 ducato 2.5 diesel normal aspirated. Van then Minibus with wheelchair and seat fixings in the floor. Custom made folding sidestep. Now a Camper van. Pillarbox red now. internal heater weabasto type.
Still going not so strong.

Searching for welder for coming MOT. Will need some modified panels because of the step and support for sliding door track.

Anyone recommend some where (will Travel happily). Happy to spend a bit!!!

Kendal - bought an hours drive from me.

Friend does a top job with welding commercial vehicles and it's own business so the prices are not sky high, jobs are priced fairly and evenly. If you can get the van to him one day, he could do it the same day - he also offers mobile services but dont think he would cover the kendal area.

PM me if you think this is worth a try and I can get you intouch with him.

regards,
Dan.

Sorry dude - no pm has come through.

I'll PM you and you can reply to it.
removed the last sentence - realized its a support for a door (not a bunch of rust to cut and fix) - still no issue for him anyway.

br,
Dan.
