Just a post to say thank you to Wayne at Classic Mobile Welding for sorting out my daily hack. I bought the car as a work horse pure and simple as it's an estate and I've a LOT of DIY to do. The sill ends and arches were bubbling then tbh. Doing some rear arms recently and I felt things were getting a bit "crunchy". Having a dig and peeling off some under seal revealed the "true horror". Seems it's a common issue with these having felt/carpet rear arch liners that the mud just sticks to. In fact even when clean they stay wet!

Looking to keep the car for a while if possible so I had to get it done. I had hoped to have been in a position to have had my own garage sorted and had by now enough practice to tackle this myself but tbh it was a non starter. Looking around locally and I'd had offers to "patch it up for another year" but that seemed a bit defeatist. I tried a couple of CP traders one who politely declined and the other simply didn't get back to me. As a MK1 Focus Estate full sills and arches were toting up quite pricey. Looking at Wayne's site I thought his welding looked good so gave him a ring. Wayne offered to cut out locally and let in fully welded steel.

So......last weekend I drove it up to Leicester and met Wayne (Nial popped in too). I left the car there for the week and collected it this morning.

I'm going to lose the felt liners, paint the arches, apply a Shultz type coating instead then top coat.

So great job! Couldn't meet a nicer guy in Wayne down to the cuppa and lift to the station!

Many thanks again.

I missed it last year and this year due to personal circumstances but hopefully next year (again attendance dependant on missus). Tis a good night though :)

P.S. I added the mud streaks on the way back! Blame the roadworks on the A14! :lol:
