Rusty arches how much £


Recommended Posts

Haha I didn't want to point out that it was a duplicate, just get a few quotes see what you think and what kind if feel you get from the shops,

My mazda had sill/arch work done, took it to what I thought was a reputable bodyshop the work looked good but the metal used was so thin the sill started to bubble again after 12 months

Least it shop's that he's busy which is better than nothing I suppose. Have you done anything to try and stop it from growing ?

I'd maybe take the paint off the worse side and treat the rust then pop some zinc based primer on it. Least it will slow it down a bit

Quite hard do real long lasting job as does need all rust metal removed, pre weld primers applied prior to new sections added & likes of epoxy primers used due due high corrosion area. Inner side needs treatment too.

Don't do bodywork myself & even in trade it hard get real quality, prices vary by 100% & big price not always the best work.

Always get some idea on warranty against corrosion return, seen to many rear arches on nissan & subaru with repairs that don't make 2yrs & that shocking really with modern paints & chemicals ...
