Hey, some advice
One of my arches is looking pretty bad while the other is okish, but both have rust on them, had a guy who was going to sort both of them for no more than £400 (would be less if it took him less but £400 was the maximum) but he can no longer do this so I am thinking of attempting this myself, the way I look at it is it cant look any worse than it is at the minute, right? Also if I do **** it up then I will have to pay someone anyway so got nothing to lose really.
What I was thinking of doing was rubbing it all down, treating any rust with some rust eater/converter, I am sure there will be some holes so I will fibre glass the back and then filler over the top, I have heard you can get "rust proof" filler? Then just smooth it all down, prime, paint and lacquer the arch? Does this sound too easy, what sort of problems am I going to run into, I have been told the only real way to treat rust is to replace the arch, if I do what I said above how long is it likely to last?
Thanks for any help.
