Re: What to ask of a Panelbeater for this repair?

Awww shucks, not really worth worrying that hard about.
1 It's a car and is still perfectly usable. (Many aren't)
2 It could be repaired without a full sill (beating & filling)
3 My car was 3 years old and had to be spot on for return to the lease company - the body shop said that for a normal customer they would fill and paint it instead.
4. If your worried about the internal rust proofing integrity - go old school, drill a hole and inject some waxoyle after the repair and put a bung on it or have them do it!

See, all looks a bit more reasonable now doesn't it ?

Relax - it'll be fine at least he's taking responsibility for the repair.

Currently in Blue Triangle's garage:
'63 Megane Dynamique 1.5dci (On its way). 01 Mercedes 320CLK Convertible. Austin 1300 Vanden Plas. Suzuki Marauder Copy. A child's Fiesta and another child's Saxo.....oh and a big caravan :-)
