    Hello gang :) I've got a 1991 ford transit travelhome and over the last week or so have had some leaks on some of the seals which I've sealed up, now it seems I've got one I can't pinpoint it's coming on the cab above and the material is coming away from the panel. I'd like to take it off and see what's behind there and replace it, is it easy to do? I've also been told that fiber glass strips are very good.

    And that's the real problem... you have to find the source which could be time consuming and involve removing a fair bit of the lining etc.. If the material is parting company from the backing it sounds like possibly a fair bit of damp there ..
    Perhaps someone who is familiar with your vehicle will be able to advise ,but I suspect it will involve some major work to sort properly..

    Hi Andy, can anyone recommend a good company or mobile company that can come down and repair it?

    I'm based near Brighton.

    I'm sorry I can't be more help with info.. saw your post and replied as best I could ... I not familar with your van type...
    Sometimes adding a few photos may help people give further advice..and someone from your neck of woods may be able to offer advice on a good workshop..
    Just keep your post going by adding as much info as you can and pictures if possible and I'm sure you will get more advice
    Ta Andy.

    Johns cross is not far from you.

    http://www.johnscross.co.uk/

    The owner Peter is a member on the forum and many people speak well of the quality of the work they do.

    He does give a discount to members of the forum but I am not sure it would apply to repairs.
