CHECK THoSE aRCHES

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

With th­ese cars now three decades old, a thor­ough check for tin worm is ad­vised, prefer­ably on a ramp so you can ex­am­ine around the rear sus­pen­sion tur­rets, where prob­lems of­ten start. Cor­ro­sion can be hard to spot so have a good poke around as it’ll spread to the rear wheel arches with expensive con­se­quences. The front wings, door bot­toms and sills re­sist rot quite well but check for tell-tale bub­bling any­way, along with the front and rear screen sur­rounds and the edges of the tail­gate.
