    Vehicular Cancer

    My car has sadly got a case of vehicular cancer of the rear wheel arch! I've been the the bodyshop across the road from where I work (Sprayaway) and I got quoted roughly £100 for the work to be done, but that is just the work and no paint, As I have a wheel arch repair panel, that I got given


    I will be trying another body shop next week when I have some flexi time which I am owed from work, to see what they could do price wise for the new piece to be welded in, Unless that is anyone on here is good with bodywork that is and they are local
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!

    Is the rot just at the bottom where you have shown ? , If so just get them to repair that section with part of the new panel ,
    It will keep the cost down

    thats what I said to the guy I spoke to, just to repair that piece, just for the work to be done, he wanted £100, as i said i would paint it myself, or at least slap abit of hammerite around it till the summer

    That's only a couple of hours tops to cut that out and weld a new piece in ,
    Even primed and skimed with a little bit of filler on the seam's ,
    Why don't you cut the rot out yourself and cut the new section to match ,
    And get them to weld and skim and prime it That will cut the cost down maybe enough to get it painted at the same time ,
    To have a complete panel preped and painted is on average £150 but if you only want that small section blowing in is only going to be £50 tops
