    Hello, firstly I have searched to no avail, does anyone have recomendations for a good body shop for replacing wheel arches and sills. Preferably in the West Midlands after this weekends clean I fear mine will need sorting sooner rather than later. Thanks for your help in advance. Roddie

    Hi all, I'm hunting for a Mk2 or 2.5 1.8 sport and came across one in great condition except the typical corrosion on the rear sills and a sign of corrosion on the front chassis rail. The corrosion on the chassis rail wasn't visible but there was a tell-tale bulge which suggests corrosion...

    So, the dreaded rear sill rot, I have had the car for 1 year to the day today and when I first saw the car I did inspect this region- obviously not well enough, I need to make sure I take a screw driver next time!

    ...probably shouldn't have poked the bubble to see how solid it was.... Guess what tonights job is! :D Also, don't put your cordless drill and spot weld bit down before you've finished the job and nip in to get another tool. It's gone walkies in the space of 30 seconds, thievin' little...

    Hi guys, Just wondering if I could get an opinion on the rust on my car? I'm not sure how badly it compares to most of it's age (N Reg), and wondering when I need to do about it? I basically just need the car to be MOT-worthy at the moment
