    Advice needed........

    If I have put this in the wrong section then please forgive me as I am a newbie.....
    Now then....
    Good morning all,
    I have just purchased a 1987 citroen c15 romahome.
    It cost me £2000 so I wasn't expecting it to be concourse.
    As I expected and as you expect, it has quite a corrosion issue.
    The last MOT had advisories on the corrosion underneath.
    Money is not an issue to a point, I have another £2000 to throw in to it.
    I want to get new cills, maybe floors welded on.
    The windscreen needs taking out and corrosion sorting around the seal.
    I will get a new bonnet and doors.
    There is some corrosion around the door pillars and the rest is just superficial rust patches.
    What I am looking for is a competent welder who is up to the job and willing to carry out the bodywork for me.
    I can do all the mechanical side of things without a problem.
    I live in West Yorkshire, so anywhere reasonably local would be ideal and preferable.
    Thank you in advance and lets get this little c15 looking like it should.
    I have just driven her 300 miles from Bournemouth to Bradford in stormy conditions and she never missed a beat.
    She deserves a bit of TLC and the wife is looking forward to giving her a makeover inside the pod, but she is not doing anything until we know it can be repaired to a good/ safe standard.
    The bulkhead seems okay, but the footwell is damp.......
    Thanks,
    Hady.

    Best thing to do re. Welding is to go by personal recommendation. Ask around your local area for a garage that does welding. Next best bet, put into a search on Google.

    Here's a C15 breaking.... could ask them about bonnet and doors... they are rare to find.

    Not sure if this is the right model though.

        I have talked to a guy in Leeds who does classic car restoration.
        I am going to see him on Friday to have an assessment and see what we can do.
