I had a guy come round to give me a quote for some work im having done today. It should be going to the body shop in the next 4-6 weeks as he is busy at the min. He is fitting new front panel and cross member, painting engine bay, removing screen and repairing and painting round it, fitting new n/w wing and repairing (sunroof rust) and painting roof. All for £430 which I dont think is too bad. Im supplying the panels.
It is yeah, theres a box section that sits underneath that bit of floor and seems to collect water and crap, and has caused it to rust through, not a great design.
Also when i removed the carpets and sound deadening which was sodden there was a pool of water down there too, water had leaked in somewhere which added to the problem.
