If you don't mind me asking, roughly how much would i be looking at to get the same job done that you had done on the bodywork? I've done a DIY job on my arches, but they aren't perfect. Also my sills are waaaaay too rotten to even bother doing anything to them. They need to be replaced badly.

to be honest i couldn't write a guide to save my life :lol: :lol: , but if someone wanted to use any of my pic's to help write one i dont mind 8-)

Ult - i got my body work done by a friend of a friend, all in it cost me about £350 ( that's both sills, both rear arches, a few patches welded on the underside, and to have the arches re-sprayed)

fiestasiphil - it certainly has been a long time comming, considering i have had the car insured as a 2.0 since march :look: :cry: :lol:

If your box you've got on now is sound then as long as you dont thrash it to often you should be ok! but id get some 'just in case'! :)
