    Is it the roof guttering on the outside edge of the van roof?
    Is it rusting away?

    Hi Jack

    I'm not sure where you can find templates.
    On this VW forum they talk about it, but no one seems to have the,

    once you get started it's fairly easy to shape the plywood to the shape you need. Messure a rectangle of the height and width, then cut out the features, such as the wheel arch, or the curve near the top at the rear. You can use cardboard to make small templates to draw around.

    If you van has old ply-lining in already you can draw around that.

    Make a template for the wall shape. Then you can reuse it. I made a little device which follows the contour of the van and draws it onto the wood. I'll attach a picture underneath. As the end follows the contour of the curve, the pencil draws the shape onto the wood. Works quite well. I made mine from grey plastic, but also made another from wood. It's the pointy end that's important.

    Quite a few suppliers of bits. - download their catalogue
