Sill and arch repaired

This is the section to see what is hidding behind those panels, and how to get rid of the tin worm, cutting out and welding in fresh metal, protection and paint.

Sill and arch repaired

Postby richf » Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:16 pm

My Mk2 had the near side sill and arch done about 2 years ago, along with a steam clean and waxoil of the underside. A couple of months ago I noticed a couple of bubbles on the drivers side sill and arch. I have been waiting for this to happen and had sussed out a guy to carry out the work. He is always booked up for about 6 weeks. I dropped the car off last Wednesday and got it back today. Really imspressed with the work and the photos taken. Cost ÂŁ240 He has promised to email them to me so I can post here.
Over the years, Tim has done a lot of restoration of classic cars and knows the MX5.
He runs a small setup - Tythe Barn Garage in Magor SE Wales - about half way between Newport and Caldicot.

Yes I appreciate what you say, but I did add that I was awaiting pictures, and also thought that if anyone in this area was contemplating having sill work carried out maybe this would have been of help.

Definitely a good idea to show others that these can be repaired and kept going, I know the thought of rust is pretty scary so to show what can gone wrong and how it can be fixed is what it's all about. Looking forward to seeing the pics :handgestures-thumbup:
