LOOK FOR BODY­WORK IS­SUES

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

Even low-mileage cars and im­ports can be very rusty. The rear in­ner and outer whee­larches usu­ally go first, but also be­hind the front wheels, in front of the rear wheels and where the arches join the sills. The soft-top has drain tubes run­ning to trays that should dis­perse the wa­ter ahead of the rear wheels, but these get blocked and over­flow into the sills and rear floors, so lis­ten for slosh­ing wa­ter. Re­pair pan­els are avail­able for the sills but not the whee­larches. Sill rot alone can be fixed, al­beit for approx £600 for both sides.
