To be fair to it both areas are quite small with good metal close to the holes. There was a build up of mud under the strut top but I have not got a clue why the small part of the outrigger rotted.

They always go there... had both of ours welded in the front wings, and rot in the floor there was amongst the reasons it failed its final MOT ...

Nice and neat, not much to do really and surprisingly localised.

Ready for the repair sections to be made up.

The outer skin is all that needs to be replaced on the rail and a simple bent section to fill the larger box area.

Don't you need carpet in the immediate vicinity for that?

Seriouslly, nothing but respect (maybe tinged slightly green) for those who can take on this kind of job.

Great work.
Just a thought, but... 8-[ Surely this car should merit it's own profile thread, rather than adding to the for sale thread? :|
