Dual cab tub

Postby Carter on Sun Jun 09, 2019 8:36 pm

My dual cab is in the panel beaters. It is a 2013 model. They have told me that they cannot source a replacement tub as there are 3 different types of tub. As a consequence they have told me they are going to "cut and paste" panels into the old one. Does this sound right or am I having smoke blown up where I don't need it?

I would have thought two types, basic one with welded on cab protector and the one with the extended wheel arches. ( What model do you have? )

There should be dozens of these tubs around the country as many fleet buyers ditch the tub and get trays fitted by the dealers. Then there are the set who do tray conversions on their up market models to go touring.

I'd say they figure there's more money in a quick cut and paste for them than spending time looking for one and paying freight.

My concern with the cut and paste would be the possible rust outbreak in future.

Tubs off dual cabs, single cabs and extra cabs?

Second hand dual cab MN tubs are not that hard to find

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?

Worse case scenario, put a alloy tray on the back and tell them to keep it as a momento if they are that rare :roll:

Rang around. Closest one is in Brisbane and I am in Canberra. Oh well, cut and paste it is I suppose.

Have you tried the dealerships?

National Capital Motors usually have a pile of them at Mitchell.

And as of today logic has officially left the room. AAMI prefer to have a panel shipped from Japan (boat due 3rd July) than use a 2nd hand tub. I told them I was happy to drive to where ever and collect, but apparently it would void my replacement warranty. Told them it would save them money on the hire car. Oh well, what can you do?

There is no logic, common sense or much negotiation with insurance companies.

When I claimed my damage on the Vito, to clean it up for trade in, there was no choice where it got repaired or what parts were used.
