    Respray/Bodywork

    i find that trying to find someone who carries out good welding work is what is difficult now. the last car that needed quite a bit of welding was carried out by a local elderly gentleman who has since passed away and his work was first class and took a great deal of pride in his work and did not charge excessive amounts of money. he even did work for a local german prestige dealership who look after older cars for long term customers who would not trust their own bodyshops to carry out repairs. A lot just cover up the rust! That price you got quoted is what i would expect going through insurance which we all know is a racket!

    Respray/Bodywork

    i paid £2700 for a complete respray 3 years ago (flash red) i stripped the car completely, the body shop removed the rear side windows the tail gate screen remained just removed the seal. i removed the windscreen myself as it had been a badly fitted replacement with so much sealant it was stuck to the A pillar trims.i carried out some minor welding repairs to the rear sill / wheel arch joint. There was the usual shopping trolley dents and a crease in the rear bumper which were all repaired The level of finish was excellent and still looks as good today although the car does not get much use. At the time when he delivered the car back the bodyshop owner had under priced the work a little as the car took longer to prep as the old paint kept clogging up his sanders. This guy knew his stuff a quick walk around my car and he could tell which panels had seen paint in the past .
  7. yes not to far from me - the last seller inherited it from a deceased uncle if i remember, has had some work done to it to get it motd again nice colour and spec. Those recaro seats i believe were only for the european mainland / german market - but i could be wrong!

  12. hydrogen will be the future - and its free and available everywhere Honda tested it several years ago but no doubt it will be buried by DARK FORCES no doubt when the petrol engine becomes extinct as it will do i believe classic cars will be retro fitted with hydrogen/electric motors
  13. cant believe this Keyo - after all that effort to get your car to that level and now to sell it!!! all i can say is that you will regret it - but if it is for financial reasons then needs must! Sad times mate -
