Rebuild or respray first
« on: April 08, 2019, 11:29:37 AM »
Hey all,

I have a VW T25 and it's been sitting for a good few years, in dry storage, as I was away travelling. I am back now and eager to get my van back up and running but I'm not sure even where to start. The body is pretty solid from what I can see but there are signs of surface rust which I'd like to take care of before it goes any further. I haven't started it but from what I remember the van was a little under powered due to a compression problem so while I'm putting the money into it I'd like to rebuild the engine or swap it out for a better engine.

What do people usually do first, body work or engine work? And can anyone recommend someone in Cork for either body work or engine work as the mechanic I used is now gone.

Any help is appreciated! :thanks
