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.
This is what came out:
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.
