Well the red g plate has a load of tinworm and its nt really worth repairing. So I bought a black f plate 1 owner from new. Its been stood for 16 years. Theres a small amount of rust on the o/s sill and rear quarter behind the bumper. Im replaceing the whole quater as it has some damage aswell. The n/s quarter needs replaceing because its damaged. Im in the middle of doing that now. Also the engine is seized. Plan is get the body work sorted and ready for paint then the engine :-)

I work in a garage in caerphilly called south wales vehicle solutions. Im a mechanic myself but we got a bodyshop there aswell and the boys in the body shop are great tbh they are really good at what they do. If you wana pop in for a quote let me know. We are quite cheap aswell to be fair. Is it the 5 you want painting ?
