Re: Rust on a Clio Mk1 1.2 '97

What can start out as a minor job can turn into a nightmare when you start grinding to find decent metal.
If the drop down flange and floor are rusty it can quickly turn into a major rebuild.

If you can do it yourself, maybe worth it.
Paying someone could get expensive.

Have a read through this thread to see what I mean.

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail...
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
