I'm at a bit of a cross roads with my GTI.
It seems to have rust everywhere!
Specifically - The panels behind the rear arches are both shot and need replacing. Both footwells are letting in water as there is rust in the scuttle panel and I think the sealant has split behind the front wings.
Theres a hole in the boot. The sills have been repaired several times but are now exhibiting rot on the bottom on the lip ( the edge bit where a jack would go)
There are signs of rot in both corners of the enclosure at the front of the fuel tank.
So ive taken it to a body shop that Ive used before.
His advice - remove the wings and sills and see whats what. He is looking at charging £30/hour and reckons not much change from £1500 once we start.
I just don't know if its worth the effort!
Are there any guys around Suffolk that fancy helping me out- cant really afford it!
